What is New (and What Isn’t) in Business Continuity Planning Pt.2
According to the Disaster Recovery Institute (DRI), the actual scope of work of a BC or resilience professional hasn’t really changed. Organizations still must have high-quality response and damage limitation plans formulated by skilled planners. The change in the resilience profession, however, is moving away from a technical specialization and into mainstream business risk management. DRI reports that consolidation of resilience disciplines has increased over the past year. The main result of this is that fewer organizations have independent business continuity departments, with BC professionals being incorporated into existing risk management or information security divisions.
