CORPORATIONS NOW HAVE THEIR OWN 'HORROR FILMS'
CORPORATIONS NOW HAVE THEIR OWN 'HORROR FILMS' BOSTON, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Commonwealth Films Inc., the leading
producer of what one Fortune 500 executive called "corporate horror films" today released two new videos entitled "Back in Business: Disaster Recovery/Business Resumption" and "We Lost Control: Illegal Software Duplication."
Complete with realistic and scary special effects, "Back in Business" focuses on paralysis, gridlock, customer loss, job loss, shut-down and other sure steps along the path toward bankruptcy for companies who face disasters without a business resumption plan. "Back in Business" shows employees at every level how important a good plan is to saving a company. It tells the dramatic and frightening story of a company that barely survives a local disaster, and demonstrates how flaws in their disaster plan almost killed the company. "Back in Business" covers prevention; everyday emergencies such as power failures and water damage as well as major disasters; data processing recovery; recovery of critical records on paper and other media; backups; off-site storage; salvage operations; security; public/ customer relations and more. Illegal duplication of software is a crime and companies have paid civil judgments and penalties as high as $350,000. Others have risked jail, lost business and incurred high legal expenses. "We Lost Control" shows all employees how to protect their organization and themselves from software licensing violations. By using dramatic vignettes to outline the rules of licensing agreements for software duplication, "We Lost Control" clearly demonstrates how to avoid the serious consequences of copyright violations by taking three key actions: 1) Create a formal, clear company policy with adequate employee training; 2) Establish software management procedures that track software usage within the company; 3) Obtain a commitment from every employee to obey the policy. --- NOTE TO EDITORS: "Back in Business" (19 minutes) and "We Lost Control" (16 minutes) retail for $475 each.
