Take a look at this document from the Centers for Disease Control, which provides a plan for business to prepare for an influenza pandemic: http://www.flu.gov/planning-preparedness/business/businesschecklist.pdf
There are many threats to organizations, and we can’t worry about all of them. As an IT security professional, would you be concerned with the threat from a pandemic? What threats do you feel are worth considering and being prepared? Conversely, what kinds of threats should we be less concerned with? Does anyone recall hiding under their desk during the Cold War… was this a threat worth preparing for? Can you find any other documents from the Government that offer guidance on other threats?
