A bit late but Happy New Year everyone! May 2016 bring all you ask for and keep you safe!
We’re very happy to announce that the new book by our Founder A.Alex Fullick is now available for purchase in both physical and ebook version.
This book is a bit different from previous books yet still focused on Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning.
When one is trying to start up a Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery program or is having difficulty managing an existing BC /DR program, a practitioner – experienced or new to the field – can and will encounter problems along the way. This book helps proactively identify what problems to watch our for and identifies early triggers that will come back to cause problems further down the road. Alex then goes on to provide tips on how to prevent the problems for occurring in the first place and what to do if the issues come to fruition.
“Watch Your Step” is a great volume for any practitioner. Get your copy online at any Amazon website.
