Top 10 Reasons DR/BC Not Compliant - Compliance and business continuity management are closely inter-related. A company's disaster recovery and business continuity programs would be incomplete without covering compliance risks and without using compliance tools to mitigate risks.

This is recognized by executive management's ensuring that integrity and regulatory compliance are achieved - alongside strategic, operations and reporting objectives as the key pillars of a corporate disaster recovery and business continuity programs.
