September 23, 2011 - Atlanta, GA: Firestorm Solutions COO Jim Satterfield has been selected to present Disaster Due DiligenceTM - Protecting Your Business Continuity in Times of Disaster for the The Georgia Society of CPAs via webcast on Wednesday 28-Sep-11 10:00 AM to 10:45 AM EDT
2011 is already a record breaker, and not the good kind. With over $55 billion in damages from disasters in the U.S. in 2011, most people and companies were unprepared. Hurricane Irene became a rain/flooding event that was underestimated for its impact and responses.
After Hurricane Irene, over 2 million homes were without power; losing power takes you back in time over a 100 years. Resources were strained and options were limited. With over 6,500 cell towers damaged, and a state with almost half of the population unable to call, communications is a clear predictable vulnerability.
Mr Satterfield is a nationally recognized expert in the field of preparedness and crisis management. He has led in the development of national standards for pollution prevention, risk management, and environmental due diligence, and has spoken to hundreds of groups on risk management, crisis management, governance, and disaster planning.
His Webcast for GSCPA will explore questions such as:
The worst disaster that you will ever see is the one that happens to you, your family or your business.
