Definitions, Priorities

Had a 'continuity planning' (i.e. emergency preparation) meeting at work the other day. In a perhaps unguarded moment, the instructor described how,
"an 'incident' is something that can be contained in a day or two without a significant impact, whereas a 'disaster' is something more serious, something which would affect the bottom line. For example, a war, a terrorist attack, or, god forbid, a liquidity crunch."

Nobody else laughed, so I didn't either.
