Business Continuity Plan
For many organisations, having an effective business continuity or disaster recovery (DR) plan is a legal requirement of your operations.
But for all organisations, no matter how large or small, the essence is the same – you need to be able to continue working in the event of a major event.
It could be a fire, a building collapse, earthquakes, storms, or even power outages. Whilst some of these may not affect all locations, you need to be prepared for what might happen.
The art of effective DR is to ensure that it is there when you need it, yet at a minimum cost and impact to your operations when everything is running smoothly. DR used to mean having an off-site backup of your data on tape – but is now a much more sophisticated operation.
Many organisations think that cloud based solutions are the easy answer – and on face value they can be – but there are many aspects beyond the technology that needs to be assessed. Factors such as data sovereignty, privacy laws, and the most obvious – security. But for an effective cloud based solution, you also rely on your data connection, and you most likely need a significant sized connection to back-up your entire data store.
