Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery

What is Business Continuity (BC) / Disaster Recovery (DR)?

Disaster recovery is the set of policies, tools and procedures to enable the recovery of critical IT infrastructure in the event of a disaster. A well-developed Disaster Recovery strategy will protect your organization and allow you to quickly resume mission-critical functions following a disaster.  

 

Why do I need BC/DR?

Every business needs to have a Disaster Recovery strategy. Statistics show that downtime which lasts for at least one hour can cost companies anywhere from $8,000 to $700,000, depending on their size. You need to be prepared for any interruption that can potentially cause your critical IT systems to be unavailable. Backing up data is important, but it does not end there. A business needs to have a plan in place consisting of alternate facilities and IT systems, in conjunction with back-ups.
