Disaster Recovery Planning

Although preventative measures and precautions can be taken to mitigate certain risks, nothing is infallible.

In this digital age, businesses are relying more than ever on technology for their daily operations. Storage is becoming extremely affordable and available, making it a vital element of a company’s operation. As a result, companies create large volumes of data, which create a crucial element of dependency for any company.

Although preventative measures and precautions can be taken to mitigate certain risks, nothing is infallible. A lot can go wrong when we least expect it to. It is difficult to predict when and if a crisis will occur and to what extent your organisation will be affected by it. Even a brief interruption can have substantial financial and operational repercussions. The impact is magnified if your business does not have an IT Disaster Recovery Plan (IT DRP) in place.
