The risks that threaten your organization by disrupting your daily operations and business processes are many…what’s your plan?

In addition to traditional emergencies like fires, floods, earthquakes and tornadoes, other risks include cyber terrorism, cyber crime, computer/telecom failures, theft, employee sabotage and labor strikes. All can be very disruptive to your business.

Business Continuity Plan (BCP) or Business Process Contingency Plan (BPCP) describes how an organization is to deal with potential disasters. A recovery plan consists of the precautions to minimize the effects of an event that causes an outage and the entity will be able to either maintain or quickly resume mission-critical functions. Recovery planning involves an analysis of business processes and continuity needs; it also includes a significant focus on mitigation.Current enterprise systems tend to be too complicated for simple and hands-on approaches, however, and interruption of service or loss of data can have serious financial impact, whether directly or through loss of customer confidence. This is where High Availability comes into play.

Disaster Recovery for technology is an increasingly important aspect of enterprise computing. As devices, systems, and networks become ever more complex, more can go wrong. As a consequence, recovery plans must also be more complex.
