Jim Satterfield to Present GSCPA Webcast - Disaster Due Diligence (TM) - Protecting Your Business Continuity in Times of Disaster

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

About the Webcast

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:

  • Do you know the business impacts and down time costs from the risks that your clients face?
  • What are the best practices, standards, and regulatory requirements for business continuity?
  • What are the five common failures?
  • What is the liability for failure to plan?
  • What should you advise your company or client?
  • What role does supply chain failure play?
  • What are the new FINERA social media risk requirements?

The worst disaster that you will ever see is the one that happens to you, your family or your business.
