Ten "Suggested" Commandments of Business Continuity Planning

Written by  David Greb, CBCP

Some time ago the American Film Institute published its list of the 100 greatest American films of all time. If they had any sense, they knew beforehand that there would be a lot of disagreement with specific selections on this list. I don't know about you, but I can't imagine even putting Star Wars on the list, let alone ranking it number 15. But that's what they did, placing it ahead of such movies as The African Queen, The Grapes of Wrath, High Noon, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Dr. Zhivago. I know what I think of some of their choices. I realize I run the same kind of risk in proposing these Ten Commandments of Business Continuity Planning. So (in true BCP fashion) I want to mitigate some of that risk by proposing this list, not as the last word, but as a suggestion, a starting point. You may disagree
