Business Continuity Summit

Be Aware and Prepare
A Business Continuity and Safety Summit

Why You Should Attend

Dallas College’s Be Aware and Prepare: Business Continuity and Safety Summit is something every professional should attend, including leaders from colleges, K-12, governmental entities, and business and industry. The goal of the summit is to educate, inform, and better prepare Dallas County for business interruptions (COVID-19) and safety incidents (shootings). Free to attend, the summit will host sessions on specialized topics like cybersecurity, mental health during a crisis, active shooter warning indicators, and more. This is a unique opportunity to hear and speak with experts in both the public and private sectors about their actual experiences in preparedness, response, and recovery – before, during, and after a business interruption.

Participants will learn from speakers with expertise in business continuity, mental health, public safety, education, cybersecurity, and more.

Interested in Sponsoring?

Suppliers to the business continuity and safety community are encouraged to sponsor and exhibit at the summit. The half day event will allow you the opportunity to connect with prospective clients in a meaningful way.
