The theme for Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW) 2013 (March 18—22) is “Business Continuity for the risks you can see and the ones you can’t.” As we’ve mentioned many times, risk awareness and risk management are key components of any business continuity (BC) plan; business continuity helps you address the visible and invisible risks. So, in honor of BCAW, this issue focuses on risk.
