BraveIT is an interactive, thought leadership event designed for the modern IT professional who is tasked with navigating opportunity and risk in a mission-critical world. The live event is taking place in Chicago on 9/13, we hope you'll join us for the live stream if you are unable to attend in person. In this era of accelerating opportunity and risk, IT decision-making evolves constantly. And while the propagation of possibilities fuels innovation and growth, it also makes it increasingly difficult to keep pace; to continuously optimize mission-critical strategies in the face of new threats and persistent change. Although your master plan may be established and stable, you know it can’t be static. Fine tuning it regularly is a required exercise in business optimization, product differentiation, and risk mitigation. That’s why BraveIT is an essential part of your yearly planning cycle. It keeps you current with industry best practices and best-in-class implementations, pressure tests your operating assumptions and enriches your plans for a broad range of potential events and opportunities—all while connecting you with peers and partners who are facing similar challenges. As IT professionals face daunting challenges to combat the likes of hackers and shrinking budgets, we recognize your heroics in changing the dialogue from “no” to “how.” All times are CDT: - 12:30 PM: Opening Remarks - 12:45 PM: It's a Brave New BC/DR World - 1:25 PM: Workshop: What Organizations Need to Know to Achieve True IT Resilience - 2:20 PM: What IT Nightmares Keep You Up at Night?
