If, as statistics indicate, more than 80% of business disasters are caused by preventable or avoidable events, the importance of practicing “proactive continuity”—e.g. the strategic integration of disaster recovery and business continuity initiatives with operational initiatives—becomes clear.

A key component of proactive continuity is site selection. Savvy planners understand that not all geographies are equally friendly to business continuity and that all sites are not equally immune to localized disasters.

We evaluate the +/- 20 risk impact categories that represent documented causes for commercially supported disasters. Each of these categories is then statistically and objectively evaluated based on actual historical data for the specific location.
