Business Continuity 101: The Basics

Patrick Dunn, Practice Lead with Orange Parachute, Inc., has worked with multi-national, Fortune 500 and Big Five accounting firms for more than fifteen years to address issues related to the effective design, implementation and effective management of IT Projects, IT Security, Business Transformation, Disaster Recovery, and Business Continuity Management.
