Business continuity: COOP plans sport a new look Business continuity often conjures images of fully redundant systems housed at a remote government facility. Federal data centers housing standby systems are still part of that picture, but agencies can now tap other options that supplement and, in some cases, partially replace traditional measures. Specifically, telework programs, already established at many agen- cies, and newer trends such as cloud computing and bring your own device (BYOD) can contribute to agencies continuity-of-operations (COOP) plans. Collectively, those initiatives paint a somewhat complicated picture of busi- ness continuity. But here s the upside: Their applicability to COOP presents an opportunity to boost ef ciency and trim ExecTe c h BY JOHN MOORE Telework, cloud computing and BYOD policies are strengthening agencies' continuity-of-operations plans 26 March 15, 2013 FCW.COM Then Now In the early days, business continuity meant maintaining fully redundant systems at facilities remote enough to be immune from local disasters.
