  • 1. Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery– Why Critical?In a technology enabled world, every business is dependent on the digital information available at thefingertips. Further with back up storage servers and devices technology has also paved way for thedevelopment of a number of ways and means to enable enterprises safeguard their critical information.Nevertheless, every business faces down times and major unknowns, thus making it vital for theenterprises to have appropriate plans to ensure continuity of business come what may.With most of the enterprises bitten by the global bug, the global business landscape makes it all themore crucial for the enterprises to call for a business continuity and disaster recovery plan as a strategicinitiative. However, statistics from the records of the Underwriters Guide showcases that as early as2007, there were only around only 6 % of enterprises have bounced back after huge data losses. 43% ofthe ones hit by disasters never reopened and around 51% closed business within a period of 2 years.Wikipedia defines disaster recovery and business continuity as an organization’s ability to recover from adisaster or any unexpected event and resume normal operations.The global enterprises in wake of the highly competitive business environment, tend to provide theiremployees, vendors and customers anytime anywhere access to the network. Further, globalization ofthe enterprises have led to an increase in the expanse of data that are transferred through the corporatenetworks. With issues of security of information in the form of unauthorized access and data leakageupsurging, most of the global enterprises make use of data centers that offer dedicated servers or cloudcomputing services. However, it thus becomes imperative that enterprises need to protect themselvesfrom any catastrophic data losses and even in the event of any natural or man made disaster should beable to bounce back within days.An effective business continuity and disaster recovery plan would therefore be one that will bedependent on the industry and factors such as complexity of the organization in relation to its location,number of employees, supply chain, systems recovery etc. The leading IT service providers however,have designed and developed robust and systematic business continuity and disaster recovery solutionsthat will not only retrieve lost data swiftly and smoothly, but also protect businesses againstunpredictable losses. The disaster recovery plans so designed offers enterprises security against naturaldisasters, accidental deletion of critical data as well as system failure.
