  • 3. Resiliency Defined
    “The ability of a business to anticipate and respond to market, customer, competitive and internal changes in a way that maintains or accelerate business performance and flow.
    Business resilience represents the next stage in the ongoing evolution of disaster recovery and business continuity.” Homeland Defense Journal
  • 4. Resiliency
    Resiliency is a twofold capacity. It includes
    both the skillful anticipation and preparation for change as well as the ability to respond effectively to the unexpected as it happens.
    Resiliency and Longevity — Resiliency is
    profoundly and intimately linked to longevity.
    Longevity promotes the development of
    capabilities that would remain hidden in the
    short term. …….Global Resiliency Network

    The National Incident Management System provides a consistent nationwide template to establish Federal, State, tribal and local governments and private sector and nongovernmental organizations to work together effectively and efficiently to prepare for, prevent, respond to and recover from domestic incidents, regardless of cause, size or complexity, including acts of catastrophic terrorism.  NIMS benefits include a unified approach to incident management; standard command and management structures; and emphasis on preparedness, mutual aid and resource management.

  • 17. Strategic Choices for Critical Function Protection
    Redirection – Split the business across geographic dispersed locations on a daily basis. Increasing load at time of crisis to non affected locations.
    Displacement – Moving less critical employees out of their space at time of crisis.
    Cross Training – During crisis employees would shift skill set to more critical tasks
    Virtual Work – Work via alternate locations (work from home).
    Backup sites - Internal business recovery or vendor contracted sites.
    Minimum Response – A conscious decision not to develop detailed business continuity plans and assume responsibility for a real-time response.
    “The focus today is much more on keeping the business running
    rather than expecting it to go down and having to bring it back online again.”
