Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
Every business, however small, should have a practical, realistic and easy to use business continuity plan in place. In our experience, the general perception of Disaster Recovery precautions is that they are expensive. In fact, their cost varies widely and Doherty will advise in accordance with your budget and requirements.
Our consultants can work with you to analyse what aspects of your systems need protecting and on what scale. For instance, you might feel that it's only your accounts systems and customer records that you couldn't do without. We can then formulate, implement and test a disaster recovery plan to ensure that you can regain access to that data quickly in the event of an emergency.
Our recommendations might include a range of measures, from storing back-up tapes off site, to using Doherty's online back-up services, to establishing a secondary work site.
Our DR audits take into account risks from the following factors:
- System and/or equipment failures
- Power failure
- Organized or deliberate disruptions
- Human error
- Computer viruses
- Industrial action
- Natural disasters
