FREE Disaster Resource Guide

Troy Tate Profile: Troy Tate

If you are involved in IT you should also be involved in the disaster recovery planning and operations for your organization. There are quite a few resources to help with this activity. A very good free one just came across my desk that I wanted to share with you.

It is called the Disaster Resource Guide. It is a free quarterly publication to US mailing addresses. The guide covers six content categories:

  • Planning and Management
  • Human Concerns
  • Information Availability and Security
  • Telecom and Satcom
  • Facility Issues
  • Crisis Communications and Response

The guide has been published since 1995. There are three specialty issues printed each year that go deeper into a single content category. To subscribe visit

Some topics of the articles in the 2008-2009 edition:

Where Does Business Continuity Planning Belong in an Organization?

NFPA 1600 or BS25999? … Why Not Both?

Using Standards to Get Immediate Value for Your Organization

The Mouse in the Room: “Where’s the Planning for People?”

May your disaster preparations pay off but may the disaster not strike that you have not planned for. Thanks for reading & let’s continue to be good network citizens!
