Why You Need To Attend Conditions of the Unknown
Planning for what you know is easy. Planning for what you don’t know is smart.
Planning for what you don’t know you don’t know is Firestorm smart.
Over the past year, Firestorm has created a unique approach to cost-effective stress-testing of teams and plans in crisis. We began hosting two-hour Virtual Stress Test exercises last September, and have since trained thousands of people from thousands of organizations worldwide using a number of crisis scenarios.
Throughout these tests, we have observed participants doing what smart participants do – asking for more information, more notice and more “forewarning” of unfolding events in each scenario, so they might better prepare their teams.
But that is not how an actual crisis will unfold.
We never know exactly where the storm will hit, what the hackers will hack, or where the weapon will aim. It does not serve our community to detail the exercise and this time, we don’t.
On August 22, 2016 from 2-4 PM, join Firestorm President Jim Satterfield and special guests Paul Marshall of McGowan Programs and Angelo Stio III of Pepper Hamilton as we unfold a crisis of the unknown.
Live participation seating is limited to the first 1000. Please register early to assure your team a seat.
