Since the Sept. 11 attacks, IT business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR) specialists have been in great and continuously growing demand. These pros document mission-critical IT assets, assess the costs of a potential loss, define options for their protection and implement their plans.

What it takes

BC/DR positions require project management, business process and risk planning experience. 

Compensation

Salaries for BC/risk analysts range from $35k to $70k; while salaries for BC/DR planners range from $78k to $105k.
