Organizations vary in the immediacy of their vulnerability to IT failures. Some start losing money the moment that a critical system becomes unavailable while others may be able to carry on with a near-normal operation for a considerable time. However, ultimately any substantial business is dependent on IT services.

  • Why a business continuity plan should have its budget protected from other resource demands.
