A potentially life-saving readers’ poll

Andrew Burton Andrew Burton Profile: Andrew Burton

A lot of interesting stuff crosses my desk as the editor of ranging from the cautious to the painstakingly vigilant. The writers we publish are extremely attentive to the multitude of ways organizations can be affected by all forms of disasters — from an earthquake to a leaky pipe. And most of the press releases we get are from technology companies updating us on new products or services. Those companies are also generally in tune with the ways businesses can lose revenue because of unforeseen downtime. However, I recently received a catalog in the mail that takes vigilance to a whole new level.

Simpler Life Emergency Provisions’ take on disaster preparedness is downright apocalyptic. From biblical passages to canned water, Simpler Life can pretty much set you up for the end of days. While that is most likely far beyond what needs to be included in a typical corporate DR plan, it got me thinking about topics we should be covering on the site. We tend to focus mainly on DR process and technology, but disaster readiness obviously can mean a lot more than that.

Take a couple minutes to fill out this quick poll and let us know which topics you are most interested in now and what you’d like to see more of on the site.
