Whether your background is focused on business continuity, security, information technology, communications, risk management or any other competency, you most likely feel besieged by an overabundance of recommendations, guidelines and general thoughts regarding how to plan for continuity of operations. Add to that the different needs of manufacturing, banking, service, retail and hospitality organizations (to name a few), and the path forward becomes quite complicated.
