Based on DR Preparedness Countil research, some companies seem to be doing much better at preparing for outages and they exhibit certain traits that distinguish them from others who are not doing so well. Here are a few examples of what companies are doing right.
In this blog I want to focus on the lack of DR planning by most organizations indicated in the benchmark survey results. It is this lack of preparation that impedes more rapid recovery from outages and costs businesses worldwide millions of dollars in lost revenues and damaged reputations every year.
As chairman of the Disaster Recovery Preparedness Council, I’m proud to announce that we’ve issued our first annual report on The State of Disaster Recovery Preparedness. Based on hundreds of responses from organizations worldwide, the 20-page 2014 Annual Report provides a close look at how companies are doing when in comes to disaster recovery best practices based on our ground-breaking benchmark survey launched in 2013.
