The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently launched a website that should be listed as a go-to source for all business continuity and disaster recovery planning groups.
This new site allows the public easy accessible information in securing the nation’s critical infrastructures and key resources (CIKR), plus links to tools and best practices for digital and physical infrastructure protection.
CIKR is comprised of eighteen (18) sectors including at least the following areas: food, water, manufacturing, energy, communications and transportation systems and emergency services.
Truly this information should be available to, and included as part of all, BC and DR organizational plans. This federal government unified approach that is coordinated by DHS will ensure protection and resiliency of CIKR through partnerships with thousands of public and private members.
