MIT BCP Course to address impacts of Boston, Sandy, Newtown events.
BCM members get 10% tuition discount.
The program will provide up-to-date assessments and knowledge on issues that affect companies and government agencies - terrorism, pandemic, cyber security, communications, news media - from the authorities involved with these efforts. The course also features BC Management’s own Cheyene Marling!
In addition this year, we will be offering discussions on the following recent events and their impact:
· Boston Marathon bombings: panel session with key responding agencies
· Hurricane Sandy: panel session of successful business responses
· Newtown School shootings: Lt. Paul Vance, Connecticut State Police
· Recent CERT congressional briefing; the latest cyber threats and initiatives
We also have a BCP lawyer and standards expert; experienced BCP program managers; DR status and trends expert; pandemic expert; federal, state, and local government emergency response officials; as well as television, newspaper, and radio news editors. Actual practitioners, not consultants! Where else can you have access to all this BCP/DR expertise in one course?
The program offers an effective combination of lecture, case studies, field trip to a DHS regional response facility, and class participation activities. Many case studies of actual crisis situations are used to emphasize and enhance the concepts. Several interactive class activities provide additional hands-on experience.
Networking time and events are built into this course. Students will also practice what they learn: the course concludes with a crisis exercise in which students take active roles in a simulated disaster, including a realistic news/social media briefing.
