Disaster Recovery and Business Contingency Plans are critical to business, but are far too often overlooked, or put in the 'inbox' to address at a later date. Successful businesses anticipate the unexpected and plan for it. Techcellence defines a 'Disaster' as anything that can result in an inability to use core IT infrastructure or electrical systems. E.g. gas or chemical leaks, fire, sewerage leaks, burst water mains, natural disasters, data corruption, theft of data or equipment, hacker intrusions, virus infection and so forth. In the end, the results are always the same: Real dollar loss, market share loss, business down-time, staff layoffs and sometimes even insolvency.
Key Questions to ask of your business
In the event of a serious virus infection, natural disaster electrical failure, theft of equipment or other major failure:
How long until core operations are up running again?
How much market share will be lost?
To what capacity, can the business function without core IT Systems?
How old is the most current business backup: (1 day, 4 hours, 10 minutes)?
Is there a fall-over site?
