Mail-Gard has the opportunity to exhibit at many industry shows and conferences, but one of our go-to events is the DRJ Spring Conference, which is being held March 24–27 at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, FL. We can always count on the Disaster Recovery Journal (DRJ) to host an informative and invaluable conference that attracts speakers and attendees from all areas of the business continuity (BC), disaster recovery (DR), and risk management (RM) fields. For us, it’s a chance to connect with leaders and participants in our shared industry.
Risk Management is the Focus of DRJ Spring 2019
The theme of this spring’s conference is “Managing Risk in an Uncertain World,” and it’s certainly true that our world has become unpredictable in many ways. One of the things we’ve learned at Mail-Gard is that it’s truly impossible to plan for every possible emergency situation, but what we can do is to plan and prepare to manage the risks that we’re aware of and to refresh our recovery solutions on a regular basis so change and uncertainty become manageable, as well.
The DRJ Spring 2019 Conference gives us the opportunity to meet with current clients looking to polish up their DR plans while enhancing their industry knowledge by taking a few classes. In addition, we also get to talk to people who either don’t have a DR plan at all, or who have realized that their DR vendor isn’t working. In either case, this is where Mail-Gard shines, because our focus is helping companies achieve their risk management goals. We assist companies in designing print-to-mail recovery solutions or helping them fix what’s wrong with their current plan.
For Mail-Gard, another advantage of attending the DRJ Spring 2019 Conference will be the opportunity to brush up on the latest trends in BC/DR, such as cyber security, which is a moving target for planning and updating procedures. In fact, DRJ states, “When it comes to business continuity, what worked a year ago will not be effective today,” which is why risk management is a never-ending job. As a print-to mail disaster recovery provider, Mail-Gard represents a different element within the larger BC/DR arena, but it’s a vital part of a successful BC/DR plan. In fact, we consider it the most important component, which is why it’s the sole focus of our business.
As a DR print-to-mail specialist, Mail-Gard has many advantages over our competition who offer DR mailing support as a sideline. Critical mailings are critical for a reason, whether financial or regulatory, and it’s surprising how often they’re overlooked or minimized in favor of the trending DR issues of the day. If you’re in Orlando during the last week in March, please stop by Mail-Gard Booth #706 at DRJ Spring 2019. The Mail-Gard group would welcome the opportunity to help you make sure that your DR plan is cleaned up, complete, and ready for spring.
