BCM & DR: People Over Profit

There is an old adage that ‘you can’t put a price on life’ and I personally believe that. No amount of money will every replace a lost life due to a disaster or any other situation. After I recently heard a response to so some questions about Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery by a Senior Executive, I’m beginning to think that some organizations actually do put a dollar value on life – even if they don’t know they’re doing.

BCM & DR: Decision Management

When you’re building a BCM / DR program, there are allot of decisions to be made along the way. Some come from results of a BIA or other information gathering session and some have to be made through feedback received from the sponsor based on a potential roadblock encountered. Regardless, decisions get made and when they do, you – as the BCM / DR practitioner – should document these decisions. Continue reading

BCP/DRP Plans: Never Consider Them Complete

All organizations with a Business Continuity Management (BCM) or Disaster Recovery (DR) program always strive to have their Business Continuity Plans (BCP) / Disaster Recovery Plans (DRP) in a state they can use: in a state they believe will cover them in any and all situations.

But if an organization takes its program – and related plans – seriously, then these plans are never fully complete. Continue reading

BCM & DR: Everything Has Awareness Potential

All too often, I run into BCM and DR practitioners that talk about their ‘Awareness’ programs and what they do to get their message of BCM/DR awareness across to the rest of the organization. Let’s face it, we all have an Awareness component to our programs but it’s how the Awareness component is executed that will make the difference. Continue reading

BC & DR Plans: Don’t Worry About the Fluff

So when was the last time you found what you wanted in a document without having to dig through pages and pages of information? Do you find that so much of what is in the document doesn’t really need to be there? Is it irrelevant? Is it fluff material just so the volume of the document looks good? In many cases it turns out the document is basically built on the foundation of quantity over quality. That means most of the document – the stuff yo don’t need – is just fluff. Continue reading
