Impact of information warfare on business continuity planning
Faculty of Business and Public Management
School of Business
The threat of information warfare (IW) is presented within the framework of a standard model for business continuity planning. IW risks are outlined, together with relevant methods of defence and recovery. The new risks should be incorporated into the business' existing plans for business continuity. Recovery may involve more than recovery of data and systems, the business must also protect and recover its image in the marketplace. With good planning and the ability to provide a flexible response, the business will recover from disaster and the crisis will be managed to a positive conclusion.
