re: 5 Reasons Your Employees Don't Care About Business Continuity
Nice Read!

You hit the nail on the head... The Human Element. The one element that businesses forget when preparing their Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery plans. During a disaster there are so many other important things that are going on, so it's hard to imagine all the possibilities/outcomes that could occur. Moreover, if people haven't practiced their plan, Forget it! It's like playing chess for the first time, You're destined to Lose.
I know a company, Agility Recovery, that offers testing with their solution and that would help with the employee/implementation aspect of this topic.

re: 5 Reasons Your Employees Don't Care About Business Continuity
Your third point regarding rouge IT really struck a point with me. One of the features in a product we're working on at Neverfail is the ability to identify important systems based on network patterns. If a particular machine or service is receiving a lot of connections, it stands to reason that there is something important about it. These important machines appear larger on a heatmap-type diagram, and they're flagged as "hotter" if they're not adequately protected or documented.
