A Backward Glance: Revisiting Our Key Blog Posts from 2021

With 2021 winding down, the time is ripe to revisit some of our key blog posts from the past year. It’s also a good time to thank everyone for reading and remind our business continuity colleagues of the importance of taking care of themselves.  

Keeping It Short and Sweet

By this time of year, many people’s attention has drifted away from work. For those hard-working folks who are still keeping an eye out for business continuity blogs, we didn’t want to disappoint you by not posting this week. But we promise to keep it short and sweet.  

There are three things we want to say today. The first is thanks for reading. We do these posts in the intervals between working on engagements for clients. If they reveal how obsessive we are about business continuity and IT disaster recovery, so be it! We hope you find them informative and encouraging.  

The second is, take care of yourself—and also of your staff, if you have one. There is no shortage of threats to everyone’s health this year, and the holidays bring their own kind of stress. But no organization can be recovered if the people in charge of recovering it are ill, exhausted, or burned out. Now is an especially good time to practice sensible self-care and look out for the well-being of the people on your team.  

Our Key Blog Posts of 2021

Our third and final topic today is revisiting the key blog posts of the year.  

These aren’t the posts that got the most clicks. Rather, these are the ones that made a reasonable stab at covering the most important themes of the year from a business continuity perspective. Here they are: 

If you read these when they came out, you might find that repay a second look. If you missed them, here’s your chance to quickly get up to speed on some of the year’s main topics. 

Thanks again. Happy Holidays. We’ll see you in 2022.
