Failing to Prepare is Preparing to Fail. Preparedness is the key. According to the Info Security News Magazine (2000), an effective BCP and disaster recovery plan can reduce losses by 90% in the event of an incident. According to another study 81% of CEOs indicated their company plans would not be able to cope with a catastrophic event like the 9-11 attacks. There are numerous examples of companies suffering due to poor or no Business Contingency Planning. The bottom line is businesses need to have plans in place to cope with incidents (whether they be major terrorist attacks or a minor hardware problem) and thereby avoid major business interruptions. Today, every organization understands this very well and want to have a strong BCP in place which creates the present demand for efficient BCP/DR professionals.
