One certainty of IT disasters is it will happen to you at some point. Fire, flood, hurricane, corrupted data: whatever the cause, at some point a data centre will experience a catastrophic event that puts revenues and customer satisfaction at risk.
Indeed, failing to prepare can mean millions of dollars in losses and major headaches while trying to recover.
As a precaution, many companies draw up what are known as business continuity plans, which provide a road map for responding to a variety of problems. The first step is invariably to identify critical assets such as manufacturing facilities, technology infrastructure, and corporate data. The next step is to figure out how to protect them—or at least minimise downtime—amid bad weather, labour strikes, or cyber-attacks.
Planning should not be limited just to a company’s own operations. Key partners and suppliers could also run into trouble. Whatever it is, the time to start disaster recovery planning is now and it is an ongoing process.
