Perhaps no disaster in recent history has done more to show the need for strong business continuity and disaster recovery planning than the Japan earthquake and tsunami of 2011. This massive 9.0 Richter scale earthquake, which occurred off the Pacific coast of Japan, caused tsunami waves that reached more than six miles inland in spots. More than one million buildings were damaged or destroyed, and nearly 20,000 people died or went missing. Tsunami damage was estimated at more than $300 billion.

Nowadays, leading organizations are taking this requirement and turning it into a strategic advantage. Namely, investments in operational resiliency are assisting organizations to become more responsive to client needs as well as improving operational reliability, quality and efficiency. It’s an effort you should consider.
