Disaster Links

Want to read up on everything to do with disasters?  Sounds like a fun evening, huh?

Well, if you do, here is a terrific web page with links to disaster related sites that could keep you busy and entertained for many nights to come.

As business continuity and disaster recovery planning professionals we often have to deal with management teams or individuals who still are willing to believe that disasters will not happen to them – or, at least, not on their watch.  Well, the data and information is piling up to suggest that it is no longer a question of “if”, but of “when”.

I do not believe in the practice of fear-mongering, but it does help to be educated and aware of what disaster threats are out there; what organizations are in place to monitor and respond to them; and, what lessons can be learned by past disastrous events.  This site provides links to all of that.

So, put on your reading glasses, get a glass of your favorite beverage and have fun scaring the crap out of yourself getting educated about the risks and threats that loom out there.

Nobody said business continuity and disaster recovery planning professionals were normal people.
