Swine flu and business continuity planning resources

It’s barely September, yet warnings about flu season — swine flu season, that is — are circulating fast and furious. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had a press conference this week, and swine flu is top of mind for many who do disaster recovery or business continuity for a living.

Here’s hoping we all stay healthy.
