My professional IT background is focused on business continuity management.  Over the past 15 years I have helped large organizations survive major interruptions due to natural and man made disasters.  This is done by discovering the impacts of a catastrophic interruption and building contingency plans to operate in the worst case scenarios.

My strategic/collaborative approach to a business impact analysis (BIA) sets the objectives for timely and cost-effective recovery solution development.  Using facilitated sessions on-line sessions we work together to gather the justification for recovery time objectives. Through this collaborative effort, we discover business process interdependency. 

My methogology follows that of a Certified Business Continuity Professional (CBCP) of the Disaster Research Institute International.
