Disaster Recovery and Service Continuity Management

No matter how carefully we build and design services to remove failure points disasters can strike at any point. A well prepared Disaster recovery plan is essential in these situations. Do you have plans to cope with any of the following disasters?:

  • Flooding
  • Theft of hardware
  • Fire
  • User error
  • Malicious activity
  • Loss of access to premises

Each of these requires different planning and resources to ensure continuity of service or fast and timely recovery. Have you considered having a secondary site to recover if your primary site is rendered unusable or inaccesible? Can you acquire new hardware to replace lost or destroyed equipment? If someone deletes the wrong records how quickly can you recover them?

With our experience of designing, refining and implementing Recovery plans we can help your organisation ensure that a disaster doesn’t derail your growth. We can help you in a number of areas:

  • Discovering the systems that underpin you Business Critical services
  • Calculating the resources needed to run these systems, or how much of a reduced service
  • Which, if any, 3rd parties would need to be involved
  • Methods and processes that could be put in place to mitigate any future disaster
  • Refining any existing Service Continuity plans through implementation testing or scenario based sessions
