If one segment of your business were to disappear in an instant, would your business survive? What about disruptions like power outages, vendor or provider bankruptcy, denial of service attacks on your servers, computer viruses, employee sabotage, and cyberterrorism?

If you cannot honestly say that you have a viable plan that will have your business up and running with little disruption within hours or days, then you need this book. It covers the latest networking considerations of disaster recovery and business continuity planning that include Internet, intranet, service providers, and client server-based applications that are the core of today's businesses.
This book provides:
  • An overview of what a good business continuity plan should entail.
  • How to evaluate your plan.
  • How to build a plan for your current and future business needs.
  • How to test your plan to ensure it is effective.
  • How to maintain the plan to ensure it will keep up with your growing business and changes in global technology.
The book comes with a CD-ROM that includes:
  • Appendices: audit programs, checklists, worksheets, plan templates, and more that can be customized to your internal audit department.
  • "Pulse Pieces": contributed by practitioners, these articles address the “hottest,” sensitive, and (at times) nerve-racking issues surrounding disaster management that these practitioners deal with on a daily basis, and that you should be aware of before they become “issues” within your organization.
