IT Service Continuity: Ensuring Resilience
Corporate IT Forum workshops are requested by and specifically designed for IT professionals striving for best practice in the corporate environment. Free from supplier involvement, delegates share and receive real-world information from experienced and unbiased peers.
"Business continuity planning is incomplete without adequately considering and protecting ICT availability and continuity".
IT Service Continuity is a subset of Business Continuity Planning and encompasses IT Disaster Recovery Planning and wider IT resilience planning.
Inadequate contingency planning is regarded as a risk to the business and is often overlooked until it's too late. However, securing senior level 'buy-in' for something that may potentially never be used is a tough challenge. IT executives report greater understanding of business continuity issues, and an increased awareness of risk management has brought about more interest in business continuity.
ICT hardware and software infrastructures are becoming ever more complex. So when it comes to supporting business continuity where do you start? What challenges will you face and what will you have to plan for?
