CAMP IT: Nov. 14 – Mindsight CTO, Jason Wankovsky, Talks DR, BC


November 8, 2018 by Siobhan Climer

Experts agree: to survive the age of ransomware and climate change you need a disaster recovery plan to ensure business continuity. But how do you prepare? Join Mindsight CTO and VP of Consulting Services, Jason Wankovsky, as well as IT and business leaders from various organizations to discover strategies to help protect and recover your organization’s critical data.

CAMP IT: Nov. 14, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Location: Donald E. Stephens Convention Center Rosemont (O’Hare) Illinois


CAMP IT: Nov. 14 – Overview


The upcoming event, Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity – Resilient Infrastructure: Chicago, seeks to help business leaders either take the first steps in disaster recovery strategy, or analyze their current plan for gaps and potential solutions. As Mindsight CTO and VP of Consulting Services, Jason Wankovsky, said in a recent interview: “It’s no longer if you’re breached, it’s when, and what are you going to about it.”

The truth is, though, that the reason you need to backup and plan for disaster doesn’t matter. Whether ransomware, natural disaster, or an accident-prone employee, disaster happens. Businesses that survive disaster have a plan and are ready when it strikes.

CAMP IT encourages CIOs, VPs, Directors, DR Managers, and InfoSec Managers to attend. During the full one-day conference, registrants can expect to learn about:

  • Calculating value of DR investments
  • Recovering from ransomware and breaches
  • Reducing DR cost and risk
  • Implementing DR in the cloud with DC failover
  • Interpreting metrics and business interruption
  • Setting IT DR expectations

In addition to the five conference sessions, you are invited to join in an intriguing panel discussion: Business and IT: Planning with the End in Mind – How to Bake BC/DR Into Everything You Do. Representatives from U.S. Cellular, Hyatt, CNA Insurance, American Family Insurance, and more will join in the conversation, including audience members. The CAMP IT: Nov. 14 event promises to dive deep into the hardest challenges IT Directors in every industry face when developing secure disaster recovery strategies.
