In most organizations, DR is the quintessential complex, unfamiliar task. Disasters happen so rarely that recovery operations are the opposite of routine. What's more the myriad, interconnected data, application and other resources that must be recovered after a disaster make recovery an exceptionally difficult and error-prone effort. Even if you have never built a DR plan before, you can achieve great results. Just follow the DR Template that Janco has created and you will have a functioning plan before you know it.

All Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery plans need to encompass how employees will communicate, where they will go and how they will keep doing their jobs. The details can vary greatly, depending on the size and scope of a company and the way it does business. For some businesses, issues such as supply chain logistics are most crucial and are the focus on the plan. For others, information technology may play a more pivotal role, and the Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery plan may have more of a focus on systems recovery.

But the critical point is that neither element can be ignored, and physical, IT and human resources plans cannot be developed in isolation from each other. (In this regard, Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery has much in common with security convergence. ) At its heart, Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery is about constant communication.

Janco's Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is that tool which can be used as a Disaster Planning template for any size of enterprise. The Template and supporting material have been updated to be Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA compliant. The template comes as both a Word document and a static fully indexed PDF document. The DRP/BCP Template includes:

  • Disaster Recovery Plan and Business Continuity Template (WORD and PDF)
  • Ransomware guidelines that meet all mandated compliance requirements
  • Business and IT Impact Analysis Questionnaire
  • Work Plan
  • Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity Audit Program
  • Pandemic Planning Checklist
  • Incident Communication Plan and Policy

MTO Disaster Timeline

Preparation for Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity in light of SOX has two primary parts. The first is putting systems in place to completely protect all financial and other data required to meet the reporting regulations and to archive the data to meet future requests for clarification of those reports. The second is to clearly and expressly document all these procedures so that in the event of a SOX audit, the auditors clearly see that the DRP exists and will appropriately protect the data.

The Disaster Recovery - Business Continuity Template can be acquired in the following ways:

Business-critical workloads in the public cloud double

July 1st, 2016

Business-critical workloads in the public cloud double

  • 38 percent of workloads today exist in a private cloud, with 28 percent in a public cloud. This means that the burden of protecting, managing and utilizing the data across these heterogeneous environments will fall largely on IT departments.Cloud infrastructure
  • Geographically, Japan and Brazil lead the way in leveraging the public cloud with roughly 50 percent more workloads moving to the public cloud than the US, Canada, France and Germany.
  • Manufacturing has led the way in migration to the public cloud with 30 percent of their workloads in the public cloud, as compared to 24 percent in telecommunications, 23 percent in both healthcare and financial and 16 percent in the public sector.
  • 40% say cost is the primary driver for moving to the public cloud, while the top inhibitor to public cloud use remains security, with 50 percent saying that security/protection architectures is still the top reason for avoiding the public cloud.
  • May feel some workloads would always remain on-premises rather than migrating to the cloud.
  • 81 percent of enterprises rely on service providers for help with cloud implementation, as well as ongoing operations.

CIOs need to understand supply chair for DR planning

Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity

Disaster Recovery

Supply chain disruptions concern CIOs, especially when they're difficult to predict. Whether it's a force of nature or a political trade sanction, supply chains can be affected at the most inopportune times. Many disruptions reduce the share price of affected companies by an average of 7 percent. As a result, prevention of supply chain disruptions have become a top priority for some companies.

With so many disruptions to consider, companies need to shift their attention to logistics and transportation solutions. CIOs who can anticipate and navigate the disruptors will help their companies survive and thrive.
