Learn how to safeguard your business and ensure business continuity through disaster recovery planning.
Effective IT disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity planning is essential for every business. All businesses depend on their IT services for moment-to-moment operations. So they must all take measures to ensure that those services are not disrupted due to a natural or man-made disaster.
However, because IT environments have become so complex - and because IT budgets are stretched so thinly IT organizations face real challenges as they attempt to safeguard the business against such disasters. These challenges include:
Ensuring that planned DR measures will actually meet the needs of the business if and when they are called upon
Determining exactly when such measures should, in fact, be activated
Documenting to senior management, auditors, insurers, and/or regulators that best efforts have been made to protect the business from a full range of potentially disruptive eventualities
