FREE SESSION ON DISASTER RECOVERY In addition, Xplor 2001 will feature a free 90-minute session to help organizations evaluate and update their disaster recovery plans for organizational documents. Expert Pat McGrew, EDP, McGrew + McDaniel Group, Inc., will present "Document Strategy After the Attack: Disaster Recovery" on Monday, Oct. 29, 2:30 - 4 p.m., at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Fla. The session is open to all professionals and organizations --- regardless of Xplor 2001 registration status --- that are interested in electronic document technology. The session will look at some of the basics of a disaster recovery plan for documents, with checklists for building a plan and reviewing one already in place. "Every company should be reviewing its disaster recovery plans and associated strategies for document management. This session will look at many issues, including transmitting more information than necessary, because in a disaster, there’s no telling who might be handling your confidential documents --- no matter how careful you are during normal operational processes," says McGrew.
