Business Continuity is much more important than ever before. The intensity and frequency of major natural disasters has risen from 100 per annum from the 1970s to greater than 500 every year today. Disaster Preparedness is determing the best disaster recovery partner. Conduct your research for a disaster recovery partner within a quiet time - don’t delay until a disaster is imminent. Continuity of Operations during or after the disaster is a large undertaking, and one your organization doesn’t need to take alone. You may recover your business considerably faster when you have a partner that understands your business and has the resources you need.
