1) Business Impact Analysis – Building the Foundation for a Strong Business Continuity Program
Often, when an organization initiates its Business Continuity Management (BCM) / Disaster Recovery (DR) program, it a pretty manual process: documents, power points and spreadsheets abound. They look good and they serve a purposes but when the program needs to mature and grow, the manual maintenance and monitoring processes just can’t keep up properly.
