Business risk can appear at the company's doorstep at any time - and in many forms. Systems go offline when aging components fail, natural disasters strike, key networking connections don't work, or a local contractor cuts a power cable. Security issues can emerge and threaten the integrity of business data. All work could come to a halt - or portions of the business could see systems go offline, while others continue to operate normally. No matter the scenario, businesses must plan for such contingencies and what they will do about them when they appear - unbidden - and affect their end users and end customers and their ability to do business.
