Resiliency vs. Disaster Recovery – There is a Difference

PHOENIX, ARIZONA – January 30, 2020 – MHA Consulting, Inc. (MHA), a leader in Business Continuity Planning, announced that its next webinar, Resiliency vs. Disaster Recovery – There is a Difference, scheduled for March 11, 2020, will feature industry expert Richard Long, Senior Advisory Consultant at MHA Consulting. Richard will be discussing the key differences between resiliency and disaster recovery and how to leverage both to support your organization’s critical processes. Join us for a stimulating discussion on this important topic.

“Any competent business continuity and resilience plan must start with a thorough understanding of all of the risks to your organization,” said Richard Long. “I am looking forward to this opportunity to share some advice on how to leverage the concepts of resiliency and disaster recovery to make a big difference to your ability to mitigate risk.”


The concept of IT resiliency has been around for some time and is often used interchangeably with disaster recovery, but they are not the same.

Resiliency revolves around creating a structure that can withstand or prevent loss of services due to an unplanned event. Disaster recovery concerns the restoration of normal operations after an unplanned event.

In this webinar we will discuss how to plan for both resiliency and disaster recovery through:

  • Understanding the difference and relationship between resiliency and disaster recovery
  • Discussing the components of resiliency and disaster recovery
  • Exploring how resiliency and disaster recovery can be integrated
  • Recognizing when each may be most appropriate

Date & Time:  Wednesday, March 11, 2020 – 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
