Sandy and Disaster Preparedness

Disaster recovery is an important, though not explicitly mandatory, component of compliance program. The Securities and Exchange Commission alludes to this in the release for the compliance rule. It’s also a key part of personal plan. I’m learning that first hand.

My family is spending its third day without power. Fun and exciting at first, it has become troublesome. A shower by candlelight is much less romantic when doing so to get ready for work. Fortunately, it’s warm in Boston so the lack of heat is not a problem.

There are many worse off than me and we escaped unscathed, other than the little wire connecting our house to the world. My hearts go out to those battling much worse damage.
