Most of these events are not in our control. Hence, the organization needs to be prepared so that it can respond to such disasters appropriately. Your preparedness can make you stand out in the crowd and predict the future of your business. Robust planning should be done to identify the risks, mitigate them, prevent, or reduce the incidents from happening, minimize the negative consequences, cope with their negative effects and to ensure that you can continue your critical business operations so that the organization and customers do not have any major impact of such outages.
