Webcast: 20 Ways to Prepare, Survive and Recover from an IT Disaster

By i.c.hill ·
In April 2011, Bill Detwiler participated in the ZDNet Webcast, “20 Ways to Prepare, Survive and Recover from an IT Disaster.”.

The 20 item summary list from the session looks interesting:
1. Planning is key
2. Design disaster plans with “APIs”
3. Backup, backup, redundant backup
4. Set up alternate sites and backup HQs
5. Understand your entire supply chain
6. Choose vendors with rock-solid DR plans
7. There will be lawyers
8. There will also be germs
9. Define your chain(s) of command
10. Monitor the implementation of your plan
11. Test your plan with disaster drills
12. Operate DNS servers in multiple locations
13. Create a database of important master lists
14. Learn to ruthlessly prioritize
15. Put “the ship” first
16. Plan for people as well as servers
17. Develop and pack “blots” kits
18. Train and educate everyone
19. Build for robustness and failure
20. Be flexible

So I'm interested in listening to the webcast. Where can I find it 3 years later?
