Disaster Recovery Journal’s 40th conference, Spring World 2009, was held this year at Coronado Springs Resort and Convention Center, in Orlando. Atlantic.Net was an exhibit sponsor at this event for the first time. This was a very informative event and a great networking opportunity that allowed us to put our name in front of more than 1,000 Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planners, Information Technology Managers, Consultants, Auditors, Corporate Safety and Risk Managers, and Security Managers. We were able to learn from and network with professionals from various industries like Banking and Finance, Manufacturing, Computer Service, Insurance, Health Care, Management Consulting, Communications, Government, Utilities, Retail, Transportation, Construction and Education.
It was interesting to see so many banks and financial institutions seriously involved in disaster recovery, especially since they spent so little time trying to prevent the disaster those industries are in currently . We were also pleased to see the growing awareness of comprehensive Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery planning within the Health Care community.
