Lessons Learned from the
2005 Hurricane Season

The 2005 hurricane season was the most active and destructive season on record for the United States. IBM worked with many clients during the numerous hurricanes to help organizations support their availability and recovery needs. We invite you to join us to hear from our distinguished panel of experts as they relate their first-hand observations, responses to the hurricanes, and lessons learned.

Our featured client speaker is Michael Evanson, Vice President of Information Technology at Oreck Corporation. Mr. Evanson's compelling story will describe how Oreck stayed in business, despite the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina on their people, facilities, and communications.

The panel will also discuss approaches you can take to protect your own organizations.
