Recently a group of executives, including myself, formed a new council whose aim is to increase disaster recovery preparedness and improve disaster recovery practices. The question is not if a disaster or outage could happen, but when it will occur and how prepared organizations are for that scenario. That’s why the council members and I believe that 2014 will be the year companies get serious about disaster recovery preparedness. We believe there are three important steps companies need to take in 2014:
The DRP Council was started last month by IT business, government and academic leaders with its mission to increase Disaster Recovery Preparedness awareness and improve DR practices.
PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Recently a council was formed to gain a better understanding of Disaster Recovery (DR) best practices and make preparedness more cost-effective and efficient.
PHILADELPHIA, PA – August 13, 2013 – Initial results from the Disaster Recovery Preparedness online benchmark survey show the dismal state of DR preparedness of companies worldwide, according to a new report from the DR Preparedness Council.
Disaster Recovery (and Business Continuity) were sometimes an afterthought even as recently as a few years ago. When I started out in IT the attitude was usually similar to that of an ostrich burying its head in the sand.
