3/4 Day Session – "Planning & Conducting an Exercise - An Interactive Workshop" - Presented and conducted by Joseph Golden, Critical Infrastructure, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Consultant, New York Power Authority.

Joseph Golden

An effective exercise program is an essential component of preparedness for any organization as it validates plans, tests operational capabilities, maintains leadership effectiveness, and examines ways we utilize the whole organization. Exercise program management involves a collaborative approach that integrates resources, organizations, and individuals in order to identify and achieve program priorities.

The Workshop will be preceded by a very special keynote presentation on "The State of Organizational Resilience" - Presented by John Morency, Research Vice President, Gartner. 

John Morency

As organizations transition to digital businesses, the risks to operations and viability increase due to complex business and technology ecosystems and their continuous state of change. Every organization that is in a continual state of change must answer the question: "Are We Prepared for Business Disruption?" To survive and prosper, they must have resilience built in to their operations, or they may fail. This presentation, based on Gartner research, will discuss the key steps that organizations must take, as well as how to measure success as a result of implementing these key steps.
