Disaster Recovery Plan time...

Hey, how's your disaster recovery plan looking?
Just missing?
Don't have one yet?

Creating one need not be hard, nor expensive.
There is a lot of expert help out there.

A smarter way is to enlist the aid of a professional consultant.
International Association of Professional Security Consultants
BAM - "BAM has a crackerjack team of ex-military strategists, FBI trainers, intelligence and security professionals, mathematicians, and 3D creative agents who use the latest technology, including mobile devices and social media networks, to arm their clients with the most appropriate tools for dealing with disaster, as it happens." Kevin Burton is their CEO.
