Editor's Note: Focus on Business Continuity/Disaster RecoveryPandemic Preparation is Just One Piece of the Puzzle Pandemic preparation gets the lion's share of the headlines when it comes to Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery these days. And that's fine. The topic deserves the attention. Needs it.
But that's not to say that pandemic preparation is the only topic of BC/DR conversation.
Quite the contrary, in fact, as we tackle BC/DR as our main editorial calendar item in this month of March. Starting immediately, you'll see on our site such pieces as:
- What Will Be the Next Big Disaster?
Interview with Charles Perrow, author of "The Next Catastrophe"
- The Coming Pandemic: How Prepared Are We?
Expert Says Financial Institutions Still Have a Lot of Work to Do
- Stephen Katz on Top InfoSec Issues of 2008 - including BC/DR
And upcoming, you can also look forward to articles and interviews on such subtopics as:
- A case study of an institution that survived Hurricane Rita;
- Update on BCP regulatory guidance;
- Data back-up, remote access & more.
The "more" subtopic is my secret code for "What else would you like to learn about?"
Clearly, BC/DR is a huge topic, and I know there's a need for additional information on such areas as what to include in a BC/DR report; how to update and communicate these plans to employees, partners and customers - how to incorporate employees, partners and customers, for that matter.
But I'd really like to hear is: What do you want to see us tackle? Where's your BC/DR gap, and how can we create some content to fill it?
Suggestions, please. Send your ideas, insights and feedback straight to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know how we can serve you better.
