Here’s a synopsis of the presentations:
Rowe Price Invokes its Business Continuity Plan, Amy Bennett

On September 9, T. Rowe Price associates were forced to evacuate their global headquarters in Baltimore due to a suspicious vehicle in the parking garage. Police, fire, and other officials investigated the vehicle and determined there was a possibility of an explosion. T. Rowe Price immediately invoked its business continuity plan, which involved convening the incident command team and sending the global trading team to the recovery site. The business continuity team managed the overall corporate response, including using the emergency notification system to alert associates and provide them informational communications throughout the incident. This real-world invocation of a business continuity plan provides an opportunity to share lessons learned across our industry.

Auditing Business Continuity Programs: The What, the How, and Some Lessons Learned, Nathan Faut

Business continuity and disaster recovery programs often begin with limited exposure as to how these programs are developed in similar or nearby organizations. Auditing these programs provides an independent review of the current state of those programs along with areas for improvement. Auditors follow a regimented approach to their analysis; this presentation provides an overview of how an audit professional develops the audits, assessments, and consultations performed for business continuity and disaster recovery programs and provides some lessons learned from various organizations that may provide support or guidance for other's programs.

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