IT Study Ranks Memphis 5 in Disaster Preparedness

Posted on Wed, May 30, 2007 at 4:00 AM

The results of an AT&T Business Continuity study on disaster preparedness have been released. Of the 10 cities surveyed, New York ranked first, and Cleveland last. Memphis (oddly lumped in with Nashville) was fifth.

From "AT&T surveyed 10 major U.S. metropolitan areas between Jan. 17 and Feb. 14 and found that New York is the most prepared of the group, followed by Houston, San Francisco, Boston, Memphis/Nashville, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul and Cleveland.

"The results included responses from about 1,000 corporate IT managers collectively from the 10 cities, noted officials of San Antonio-based AT&T.

"The rankings were based primarily on three criteria: the state of a city's business continuity plan; whether the city has adequately educated employees about the plan and installed systems to implement it; and on cybersecurity policies and the use of managed security."
