Businesses use information technology to quickly and effectively process information. Employees use e-mail, instant messaging and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) telephone systems to communicate. Servers process information and store large amounts of data. Desktop computers, laptops and wireless devices are used by employees to create, process, manage that data and to communicate information. Internet connections interconnect offices or employees to internet resources. What do you when your information technology stops working?
An information technology disaster recovery plan (IT DRP) should be developed in conjunction with your business continuity plan (BCP). MSD can work with you to determine priorities and recovery time objectives for critical & crucial systems during the business impact analysis. MSD can help with technology recovery strategies to restore hardware, applications and data in time to meet the needs of the business recovery.
Businesses large and small create and manage large volumes of electronic information or data. Much of that data is important. Some data is vital to the survival and continued operation of the business. The impact of data loss or corruption from hardware failure, human error, hacking or malware could be significant. A plan for data backup and restoration of electronic information is essential.
If your business continuity plan does not contain an IT Disaster Recovery Plan, MSD can help.
