Jack Healey CPA/CFF, CFE of Firestorm led off on Sunday with a session: When Data Breach Strikes. During Jack’s session, attendees learned:

  • The four types of Business Crisis-Risk

    • How to determine the Crisis is over
    • What to do next

Our team followed with Dr. Robert Chandler speaking on the topic of Decision Making During Disasters and Emergencies: Research Findings and Applications to Enhance Performance. During his session, Dr. Chandler reviewed recent behavioral and psychometric theories and research findings that identify challenges and problems with decision making during crises, including the physiological, psychological, and cognitive diminishment which occurs during peak periods of a crisis situation.

The session focused on how to anticipate and mitigate said barriers to quality decision making and a number of applications for improving decision making quality during disasters and emergencies.

Firestorm President, Jim Satterfield, concluded the Firestorm presentations by conducting his DRJ 2session “Earthquakes, Monkeys, and Mergers, Oh My!”

Jim’s session reviewed current events with a focus on consequence management – what worked, what didn’t work, and why; critical decision support, intelligence monitoring, and messaging with an Intelligent Network.

After a full day of learning and networking, conference attendees kicked back and relaxed with a Hospitality Night sponsored by MIR3 and Fusion. Featuring a Caribbean barbecue, the Hospitality Night was electric with good music and great food.
