Your state, local, or educational (SLED) organization may be operating on borrowed time if you don’t have a business continuity and disaster recovery plan in place. Natural catastrophes have never been more threatening than they are right now. According to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), 20 separate weather and climate events caused at least $1 billion in damage in 2021.

Disaster recovery plans focus on the steps that must be taken before, during, and after a loss. In contrast, BCP is the preventive process set up before managing a disaster.
