DR Planning For Teleworking Environments

Written by  Adelle A. McIlroy, CBCP, CISSP November 22, 2007

In addition, with more complex personal obligations, such as child or parent care, and the desire for flexible work schedules emerging in many employment markets, a program to allow employees to work full- or part-time from home can be a great advantage in hiring and retaining top talent. However, disaster recovery (DR) for a company heavily dependent on teleworkers requires planning and preparedness.
