GRC for Business Continuity Professionals

Is this a replacement for ERM?
Will business continuity get merged into GRC?
Is GRC just being used to sell software and consulting?
Join us as we discuss GRC, where it came from, and how it may share a common future with business continuity.
Small Business Disaster Preparedness
Written by Mike Minzes
A few years ago, I was attending a meeting at a mid-sized company when I was handed a 400-page document and told that it was the active operational business continuity plan for the business. I opened the binder and by the time I got to the third page, I couldn't read anymore. The plan was so complex and cost-prohibitive that it would have caused more problems that it solved.
