A well-constructed IT disaster recovery and business continuity plan (DR/BCP) is essential for every business, to reduce risk and ensure that the organization can survive a significant disaster event. DR/BCP plans also help achieve regulatory compliance and meet customer demands or internal objectives to achieve business viability.
Unfortunately, DR/BCP planning and development often doesn’t get the attention or resources it needs to provide value beyond meeting a compliance checkbox. It’s easier to stay focused on any immediate, tangible problems and dismiss the hypothetical. But we believe that mature, professional technology leadership requires thoughtful DR/BCP planning and regular plan testing.
