Business Continuity

ASERT Business Continuity Overview

Following some very active weather storms such as tropical storms and a number of unplanned network and system outages, a heightened awareness to Company’s vulnerability on a major incidents have taken hold throughout several organizations. Disruptions of normal business operations (NBO) can occur due to Pandemics, Weather, Terrorism, Planned Maintenance / Upgrades or other unplanned events or crises. As a result, many businesses recognize the importance of business continuity planning and have initiated a series of activities to mitigate the many events that can disrupt NBO systems, applications and communication channels.
