Think about all the time and resources you commit to growing your business. Then think about whether all that work is protected from being devastated by a data breach, transportation strike, major chemical spill, or any of an endless array of potential disasters in today’s tumultuous world.

It’s astounding how many major corporations are unprepared for the ever-growing list of disasters, large and small, that can cripple operations and force a closure . . . and that threaten client relationships, market share, profitability, and so much more.

Don’t be one of them. The Disaster Recovery Handbook explains how to create a comprehensive plan for limiting the damage of any potential disaster, protecting irreplaceable assets, and facilitating a speedy recovery. This practical, detailed, and easy-to-use guide—now in its third edition—will catapult your company to the leading edge of preparedness. Look inside for all-updated content that deals directly with old and new threats and provides essential advice and planning tips regarding information security. You’ll learn about:

• Assessing your company’s special threats and risks

• The differences between technical and data security

• Identifying which security assets to protect

• Social engineering

• Incident-management plans for security breaches

• Preserving forensic evidence

• Security policies and employee preparedness

• And more

Everything you need is here. The Disaster Recovery Handbook is your toolkit for developing a world-class Business Continuity Plan that starts with creating a team for the task, guides you through assessing every conceivable threat, and helps you develop processes tailored for your company’s specific priorities.

It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the alarming possibilities, but this handbook treats preparing for the unimaginable like any other project—as a process that can be managed, prepared for, and excelled in.

Don’t just survive it. Maybe you can even thrive in the wake of disaster . . . with The Disaster Recovery Handbook.
