The fortunes of businesses today are inevitably linked to IT infrastructure, critical data, sustainable workforce, supply chain logistics and integral systems. 
Due to the constant risk of adverse events such as internal and external security threats, natural disasters, sophisticated hacking, and the like, organizations need to increasingly focus on developing a resilient disaster recovery plan. 
Most organizations don’t tend to create a disaster recovery plan based on past events, and consider the IT infrastructure, the physical workplace, and human resources in isolation.
  • Creating and maintaining the disaster recovery program within the enterprise is increasingly important. In this critical role of conducting your awareness session for your Senior Executives, we discuss working with technology and the business units in identifying core dependencies and processes, as well as identifying vital records and key contact information. We discuss establishing and coordinating the methodology for an offsite recovery including identifying equipment requirements and essential personnel. We cover the process of developing test plans and outline the objectives, ensuring the successful implementation and testing of the plans and documenting the results.
  • The full process considers the risk, analyzes the risks, strategies the mitigation and recovery solutions and implements those solutions. The implemented precautions affect minimizing the effects from and event that can cause an outage. This helps the organization to either maintain or quickly resume mission-critical functions.
