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 http://www.disaster-resource.com/renew.
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!
