Today, there are any number of events that could cause a disruption or even a complete shutdown of an organization’s operations. Should this occur, what would be the impact to your organization? Organizations, both public and private, need to be prepared to address a disruption to operations, whether it is due to a natural disaster, terrorist event or cyber incident. One of the first things that should be done to prepare is to develop a continuity plan that can be put into action when a disruption occurs.
CIAS-ISAO Executive Director, Dr. Greg White, explained what continuity plans are, why one is needed, the different types of plans and how to get started.
