What are Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning?
Business Continuity is about ensuring that your business’ critical operations can continue to operate following a regular failure or more serious disaster – fundamental to this is a company’s IT systems. Eclarity can both pre-emptively plan for any IT disaster and help provide your business with a strategy to negate other non-IT-related risks. This process is referred to as Disaster Recovery planning.
There are two main elements to the initial process. First is an in-depth and quantifiable risk assessment that both identifies and qualifies IT risks, followed by a Disaster Recovery plan to be followed in each scenario. This helps to ensure that if an unplanned disruption occurs, your services will continue to function or can be brought back online as quickly as possible. High-risk items can be seen and prioritised for change to reduce their impact, ensuring a highly efficient use and targeting of funds for remedial action.
The methodology that Eclarity follows can be applied to other areas of Business Continuity planning to cover all the potentially impacted parts of a business, including plans for business processes, human resources, assets and business partners.
