Featured Presenters for SNW Spring 2010 include:


Allstate and the Emerald City
Anthony Abbattista
, Vice President, Technology Solutions, Allstate Insurance Company

Anthony Abbattista, Allstate Insurance Company vice president of Technology Solutions, will share how the company is reinventing protection and retirement for consumers by using the latest green technology and reducing the direct impact of its operations on the environment. Learn how sustainable actions – including a state-of-the-art green data center – are saving the company two kinds of green: trees and money.

The Changing Face Of Business Continuity And Strategic Planning
Martin Gomberg
, Senior Vice President & Chief Information Officer, A&E Television Network and The History Channel

Once considered the flip side of disaster recovery planning, business continuity planning is fast becoming a critical tool for corporate success and even business survival, contends CIO Martin Gomberg of A&E Television Networks. He argues that CIOs must expand their thinking beyond protecting people, space, data and equipment to encompass the increasingly complex threats and systemic exposures from global economic crises, terrorist activities, natural disasters and more. Marty will describe the changing threat environment and how you should rethink your own strategic requirements around business continuity.

Additional conference agenda details will be posted shortly.
