Registration is required for this event. 
An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated area, and recent active shooter incidents have underscored the need for a coordinated response by law enforcement and others to save lives. The FBI is committed to working with its partners to protect schools, workplaces, houses of worship, transportation centers, other public gathering sites, and communities. This training is an opportunity for industry partners in our region to learn about active shooters, and what the FBI and DHS have to offer in terms of capacity, expertise, specialized capabilities, training, and resources before and after an incident occurs.
DHS will discuss resources available to industry to develop response plans.

InfraGard Pittsburgh Presents: Disaster Recovery In Action and Business Continuity Resources

As organizations and industries we have gotten into a cycle of assess, plan, prepare, execute a table top exercise, and repeat; but we are never sure when the "big one" or the "real incident" happens if we will really be prepared. Additionally, we never know if it will be man-made or natural. During the 2016 flood of West Virginia, Poca Valley Bank experienced firsthand what it was like to implement a "Disaster Recovery Plan." Poca Valley Bank has graciously offered to come to Pittsburgh to share their experience from three perspectives: Chief Executive Officer Linda Ashley, Chief Information Officer John Cole, and Chief Operating Officer Sherry Evans. This eye opening presentation will help you prepare for the next disaster that may affect your company.

Following Poca Valley Bank we will have a case study for the VEEAM Solution presented by Doug Hathorn, Systems Engineer VMWare/Storage, Industrial Scientific. This will be followed by a guided discussion on resources you can use to help your organization be resilient.

DATE: August 6, 2018 (Monday)

LOCATION: Industrial Scientific Corporation, One Life Way, Pittsburgh, PA 15205

SCHEDULE: 2:00pm – 5:00pm  - Please arrive between 1:30pm and 1:55pm, we will not be able to let attendees in before 1:30 due to escorting constraints at our hosting location.
