Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery: What We Learned from 9/11
A Joint CENDI/FLICC Symposium



December 11, 2002



In the shadow of the first anniversary of 9/11, many information centers and
libraries are reevaluating their disaster recovery plans.  Managers of
various parts of the enterprise are concerning themselves with the broader
issues of business continuity, which is an ongoing process, and are in need
of collaboration and guidance to develop the best plans possible.  To enhance
this collaboration, CENDI, the STI Federal Managers’ Group, and the Federal
Library and Information Center Committee (FLICC) are hosting a one-day
symposium on business continuity and disaster recovery. 



This workshop will focus on disaster preparedness, recovery, and service
continuity in our digital environments - an especially critical area in these
difficult times.  The program will include general overviews of the topic
from the private and government sectors and real-world scenarios from Federal
information centers and libraries that have survived physical disasters and
electronic interruptions. Staff will discuss the lessons learned and the
impact on their agency’s disaster recovery planning.



With this seminar, the FLICC Content Management Working Group continues its
tradition of yearly InformationTechnology Update Workshops. Additionally,
FLICC plans to build an active community service for sharing disaster
recovery plans and locating experts who can help others develop plans.  As
part of the workshop, FLICC will present a proposal to start with a small set
of web-based services designed to support the Federal community as we work on
disaster planning for our mission critical infrastructure and information
services. Plan to be in on the ground floor of this exciting new resource.



The workshop is intended for managers and staff at federal information
centers and libraries who are involved directly with writing disaster
recovery plans or those who must provide input to or execute such plans.
