Shamelessly plugging a business continuity seminar

One of the more common mistakes I see entrepreneurs make is to not properly protect their investment.  I challenge you today to take a look at your laptop, server, etc.  If it all went up in a fire tomorrow - would you be able to recover?  If one of your servers or workstations had an intractable rootkit installed - how long would it take you to get back to "running state"?  Have you suffered a data loss in the last 12 months?  How long before you restored, recreated or were able to use that data again?  If you're a software entrepreneur the software itself, and all your business planning IS your business.  If it fails, is lost or goes down - you're the one who will deal with the consequences - and they could be business killing.

I will be holding a Business Continuity and Security seminar on December 12th from 7:30am to 10am at the Radisson hotel in Henrietta.  This seminar is designed to update small businesses and entrepreneurs on new and better ways to protect their investment in data and systems.  This program is not targeted at IT experts - more for the manager/owner/employee level of decision maker.  It is also not targeted at Enterprise protection level requirements.

This amusing presentation features a ton of great information, breakfast and lolcatz for only $10.  For more information or a sign-up sheet check the link.
