Contingency & Business Continuity Planning to Survive Active Shooter Incidents
For almost a decade now, the number of active shooter incidents had outnumbered the days in the calendar by 33%. In 2018, there were three such incidents in under a span of 24 hours with casualties dead and triple the amount injured. According to the Department of Commerce, Small Business Administration, and FBI, more than one-third of entities do not survive. Business continuity and disaster recovery plans are not sufficiently robust and thorough to provide the blanket required by organizations to survive such disastrous events that appear to have no end in sight any time soon.
The theme and purpose of the presentation is on life preservation and business continuity, regardless of the entity.
