Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery planning are processes that help organisations prepare for disruptive events, whether that be a catestrophic event such as the whole office burning down or simply a power outage.
Regrettably, ignoring "disaster recovery" is still common practice because disaster seems an unlikely event and the majority of businesses still think they will operate without ever experiencing a situation that requires the activation of a BC&DR plan.
However, reality is most businesses will or have already experienced a situation that could have been significantly better managed and controlled had they maintained a Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery plan.
When selecting 2way Technolog as your partner in developing a BC&DR plan, our involvement in this process can range from overseeing the plan, to providing input, testing and implementing the plan into action during an emergency. Your plan may involve 2way Technology's products and services as part of your continuity and recovery procedures.
The first step is to conduct a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) as this will identify the mission-critical systems and processes within your organisation. The Business Impact Assessment will identify the effects an outage could have on your business if a situation should occur. The greater the impact, the more a company should invest to ensure continuity.
Examples of continuity strategies employed by 2way Technology clients include:
- Completely Redundant IT Systems
- Storage of Replacement Components
- Management of Offsite Nightly Backups
- Restoration Testing of Nightly Backups
- Backup of Key Personnel Positions
- Offsite Meeting Point Location For Staff
- Management, Testing and Execution of BC&DR Plans
