The latest business continuity news from around the world

A guide to vendor continuity

Ripcord Solutions has publishing a guide to help companies ensure that key third parties are adequately prepared to handle crisis events.

Third parties are a way of life for today's businesses, however, when a vendor isn't prepared for a crisis, the enterprise's operations could also be disrupted. A company cannot afford to simply cross its fingers and hope a vendor is adequately addressing business continuity and disaster recovery. Ripcord's new e-book examines the challenges companies face with vendor continuity and details steps that organizations can take to ensure their third parties are on the same preparedness page.

The guide includes:

  • Descriptions of some of the trends companies encounter with vendor continuity, including regulatory concerns and fourth and fifth parties;
  • Five strategies for strengthening vendor continuity.
The e-book, The Ideal Route to Better Vendor Continuity, is available here (registration required).
