Disaster Recovery and Continuity of Operations Planning: Keeping Your Organization Operating at Its Best While Preparing for the Worst
For any government organization or educational institution to fulfill its mission, it's important for data to be continually secure and available. Numerous events over the past few years have led to a heightened awareness of the need to be prepared for the worst. IT departments are now faced with the pressing concerns of growing demand for and reliance on access to information, along with ensuring continuous operation during a disaster. These concerns are forcing organizations to bring a renewed focus to Disaster Recovery (DR) and have a comprehensive Continuity Of Operations Plan (COOP) in place. Having a thought-out, detailed strategy for disaster recover and continuity of operations puts organizations in a position to keep their systems running when problems occur.
