Nils P. Ekberg of NYSTEC speaks to Business Continuity Committee

November 9, 2009 | Business Continuity Committee

The September Business Continuity Committee meeting featured a presentation by Nils P. Ekberg, Information Security Consultant at the New York State Technology Enterprise Corporation (NYSTEC). The presentation, titled “Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Overview,” covered a number of topics, including: lessons learned from other universities’ educational experiences (e.g., a study of colleges’ experiences recovering from Hurricane Katrina); goals of an effective business continuity/disaster recovery program (e.g., partnership and coordination among different business units); and key ingredients for plan development (e.g., maintaining emergency contact information).

CUNY will continue working with Mr. Ekberg and NYSTEC in developing and implementing its business continuity plan. A copy of Mr. Ekberg’s presentation can be found on SharePoint.
