Keylight Case Study: How Heartland Payment Systems Brought Order to the Chaos of Business Continuity
June 8, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
Two years ago, Heartland Payment Systems discovered through a survey of its entire management team that one of its top two risks was business continuity. Addressing this issue was no small task. As one of the nation’s largest payment processors, Heartland employs more than 5,000 people in more than 50 facilities across the U.S., all of which required business continuity plans. In this webinar, Ken Voiles, senior business continuity analyst at Heartland, along with Sam Abadir, LockPath’s director of product management, will explain the steps Heartland took to develop BC plans in its U.S. operations. They will also highlight how the company used the Keylight Platform to minimize the risk of disruptive events on its business, and how the platform’s scalability will enable the company to expand the initiative to its global operations.
