Featured Presentation

Who's flying the plane?

Speaker: Greg Moore Green Mountain Software

Summary: Every company will eventually have a disaster. It's just a matter of size and scope. This talk is a general overview of how to respond to an incident and talks about the roles of management and IT. This is not your typical discussion of disasters focusing on how to make a backup plan or enable high availability. I'll touch upon what we can learn from plane crashes and from rescuing stuck or injured cavers. We'll learn acronyms like CRM and ICS and what they can mean to your organization.

About Greg: Greg Moore is a graduate of RPI. There, he majored in CompSci, but probably spent as much time hiking, canoeing, caving and rock-climbing as he did studying. Since 1990, Greg founded a consulting business: Green Mountain Software and worked for startups including PowerOne Media, TownNews and Traffiq and now consults. These days, when he's not busy with playing with SQL Server or spending time with his family, he can often be found underground caving or teaching cave rescue with the NCRC.
