Could your business continuity assumptions cause your plans to fail? Every business continuity plan is based on assumptions that guide risk mitigation efforts and the allocation of scarce resources. Record-breaking incidents such as Hurricane Sandy and the Iowa floods of 2008 cause us to periodically reassess our assumptions and risks facing our staff and operations; however it can be easy to miss seemingly small items that could potentially create severe recovery issues.
This session will identify several planning assumptions or possible omissions that should be considered before a disaster strikes. Cost-effective risk mitigation recommendations will also be provided.
- Better understanding of risks that plan assumptions can create
- Enhanced ability to identify possible recovery risks
- Better understanding of risk mitigation options for "dangerous" assumptions
