The statistics tell the story and often those getting caught out were aware of the risk ahead of time

Business continuity can mean so many things, and definitions and expectations vary. We work with clients to ensure that their functional or regulatory requirements are met in terms of backup, recovery, disaster recovery, and working contingencies.

Key considerations in planning for business continuity

Recovery Time Objective (RTO)

How long will it take to restore from backup? Is any downtime acceptable, and if so how much?

Recovery Point Objective (RPO)

How often is data being backed up? Is that frequency sufficient for the context of what is being backed up (e.g. finance systems may require more regular backup than a file repository)?

Some questions worth asking

Protection level
What level of protection are you getting in your cloud applications? Do you require more backup than the vendor is offering by default?

Backup location
Are you susceptible to natural or domestic disasters? If so, do you need geographically disparate backup locations in order to have disaster recovery?

Physical disasters
How would your staff work in the event of a physical office going offline?
