Are You Ready When Disaster Strikes? Expert Panel on Data Center Resiliency

Northern Virginia will become the largest data center colocation market in early 2015 according to 451 Research. Critical industries rely on the resiliency of the entire region. In times of crisis, how do we act individually and collectively to ensure the reputation of the region's businesses are maintained and enhanced as a result of our response.

Our expert panel will discuss various scenarios (weather, terrorism, catastrophic incident, crisis communication) that affect regional resiliency and what best practices can be implemented to ensure that Data Center Alley continues to be the go-to destination for data center growth.
