Threats to an entity’s existence manifest in diverse forms, including disruptions, emergencies, crises or disasters. Any one of these incidents or events can jeopardize data processing services sustaining mission critical operations. When business integrated information systems are unavailable, efficiency is diminished, effectiveness is eroded, compliance is hindered, and employees are idled. As a result, entities should regularly examine their business continuity, disaster recovery, as well as back-up plans to ensure adequate operational requirements forecasting for service restoration.
