The Central Maryland Chapter of the Association of Continuity Professionals would like to invite you to our March 13 meeting in Baltimore.

We’re very excited about this month’s presentations!  Here’s a synopsis:

Introduction to Physical Vulnerability Assessments

Ian Pleet, U.S. Department of Defense

An introduction to the basics of performing a physical vulnerability assessment of your facility including access control, HVAC, redundant power and single points of failure.

Extending Your BCPs to Your Employees and Supply Chain Partners

Ralph Petti, Scalable Risk Solutions, LLC

This presentation will provide an overview of how traditional business continuity planning has changed and how it can help protect all of your facilities. We will explore the mandate of ensuring that your supply chain partners are thinking along the same lines. What would you do if you were able to recover, but could not depend on your supply chain partners to be there? Do your employees all have your business continuity plans at their fingertips? It's all related.

The meeting will begin at 8:00 am with a complimentary breakfast and networking session and will conclude by 10:30 am.
