10 Most Common Business Continuity Myths
I have business impact insurance, so I don’t need BC/DR services.

My employees can always work from home if anything happens.
A reciprocal agreement with a neighboring business gives us access to backup workspace when we need it.
We have another facility where any impacted employees can work.
We’ll use our cell phones during an outage.
We can call an OEM to get any backup equipment we need.
We can’t afford to test our BC/DR plan often because testing disrupts our daily operations.
