There can be little doubt that organized disaster behaviors are an inherent
trait among people throughout the world and throughout history. In the past,
organized disaster behaviors were primarily in reaction to life-threatening
events arising in the natural environment. These reactions reflected our adaptive
ability in an often chaotic natural world to initiate organized social
survival skills. They have stood us in good stead for millennia. Today, we face
disasters of our own making.
This volume broadens the scope of Trauma and Disaster: The Structure of Human
Chaos to include an expanded focus on a special type of disaster, terrorism. Terrorism
seeks to achieve political, ideological, or theological goals through a threat or
action that creates extreme fear or horror.Many believe that terrorism (and torture)
produce the highest rates of psychiatric sequelae amongst all types of disasters.
In this module, students determine threats and analyze risks to physical
resources in an organization. They then learn how to design security for
facilities, computers, mobile devices, and hardware. Students will also learn
about implementing disaster recovery as a way to protect physical resources.
This module focuses on access to and protection of physical resources. Other
modules will focus on access to and protection of data.
Competitiveness, as measured by the SBSI, relates strongly to the ability of a small business to
succeed in meeting broad business goals. Owners of businesses in the “highly competitive”
category largely believe they have successful businesses; for example, the businesses are
growing, creating wealth, avoiding risk, and meeting the owners’ expectations for income and an
An economy’s trade patterns create one channel for the cross-border transmission of shocks.
While the average economy in our data had a current account very close to zero in 2007, the
range is quite large. Trade openness, measured by the ratio of the sum of exports plus
imports to GDP, captures the importance of trade. The average in our data is 98% of GDP,
but the standard deviation of 66 percentage points implies a wide distribution. Finally, a
country’s natural endowment may play a role in its macroeconomic performance.
Norton Ghost protects your data from computer disasters. The intuitive
Windows interface lets you create backup images of your hard disk or selected
partitions. You can clone directly between two computers using a network, USB,
or parallel connection.
Application-Level Failover and Disaster Recover y in a Hyper-V Environment
that the recovery process is simplified and not dependent on the execution of several processes to reach the same recovery-state goal. This chapter covers the various failover and recovery options commonly used in a HyperV virtualized environment, and how to choose which method is best given the end state desired by the organization.
It is the sheltering-in-place concept that has not been adequately planned or tested. As Annexes are created to address vulnerabilities, it is realized that many disasters involving the elderly population will require staying in place, sometimes for prolonged time periods, rather than evacuation (Florida Health Care Association 2007). These plans must be created and tested as well. Issues discussed earlier pertaining to supply chains and stockpiling are paramount here. In general, plans are useless if not tested. This was again demonstrated through the Katrina disaster.
