C28: The Forgotten Business Continuity Planning Scenario          
Santita Hyman, Assurant, Inc.             
Not too long ago in the late 1990s/early 2000s, the H5N1 avian flu presented itself as a viable threat to humans. With these new threats, companies with a strong sense of business continuity started planning for a pandemic. How would a company continue to serve it clients and customers if 60 percent of their workforce was unavailable? Fast forward to today. Little is heard about the avian flu or pandemic planning. It is clearly time to not only focus on cyber breaches and their effect on business operations, but it is time to dust off that loss of workforce scenario.
