Everything is foreseeable. Anyone can be found accountable.
Plan for Crisis: Plans will not solve or even prevent a crisis. But, the right plan, individually tailored to your business or organization, will determine whether your company will survive the disaster.
If directors and officers neglect to prevent or mitigate foreseeable disasters, or fail to prepare for those that are not preventable, the business-judgment rule will not shield them. Disaster Due Diligence™ and sound governance demand that organizations develop, maintain, and test a comprehensive continuity of operations program.
Shrewd competitive strategy demands the same planning. Why? Because organizations with business continuity plans are better prepared to survive a disaster if one occurs.
