Organizations have been developing, implementing, testing, and executing IT Disaster Recovery Plans (DRP) for years. Parallel with this evolution of IT disaster recovery efforts has also been an increase in the development and use of varied definitions and acronyms to describe the recovery of IT services. Operational areas of the organization concerned with an interruption in critical business functions have built contingency plans (BCPs) to address an interruption in their functional environments, their supply chains, and/or loss of business partners. Nonetheless terminology has continued to be a moving target. It could very well be that this confusion goes to the heart of our credibility as an industry. Consequently rather than attempt to impose a discrete set of definitions for all industries or organizations, this session will discuss the roles of several of the risk management components, and the relationships that exist among them so that an organization can, at a minimum, ensure that critical aspects of business protection are identified and addressed within the framework of their corporate culture.
