Disaster Planning: Pandemic

Chris DeVoney has a very interesting article at Enterprise Systems Journal where he interviews Dan Lohrmann, CISO for the state of Michigan. They discuss the issue of pandemics and other disasters that aren't typically on the radar when you think of DR or BCP.

I always enjoy hearing about scenarios that government or private sector come up with to test their systems and procedures. Dan was the 2006 Information Security Executive of the year (congratulations Dan!). Data Centers tend to focus on how resilient the facility is, but what if the facility and network are still there, but there are no people to operate it?! Read the complete interview here.
