IT Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning

A Well-Crafted IT Disaster Recovery Plan Ensures You Are Prepared for Anything

Having a well-crafted IT disaster recovery plan and business continuity plan management strategy that is grounded in a robust data backup and recovery solution is essential. Loss of data could mean lost emails, accounting data, patient or client files, company records, or client records. It also means potential loss of revenue.

Organizations are under pressure from regulatory compliance, customer demands, or internal mandates to develop Business Continuity plans (BCP) and IT Disaster Recovery plans (DRP). Our Strategic Consultants can assist your organization in BCP and DR activities to help you achieve your goals.

IT Disaster Recovery Maturity Assessment

Are you sure that your IT Disaster Recovery Plan is adequate? Does your business have the basic requirements in place to invoke the Disaster Recovery Plan and execute recovery?

For organizations with a DRP, Dataprise can perform a Disaster Recovery Maturity Assessment that aligns to ISO 22301. We assess your organization's preparedness for a disaster event, identify areas that need improvement, and provide a roadmap of activities to elevate the maturity of your IT Disaster Recovery Plan.

Business Impact Analysis (BIA)

Deciding where to direct effort and money toward improving business continuity capabilities can sometimes feel like being asked to choose between apples and oranges. A Business Impact Analysis (BIA) provides an understanding of the impacts a disaster event can have on your business.

With our BIA, we work with key business leaders and stakeholders to:
  • Identify the cost and revenue impacts - Loss of revenue
    - Loss of productivity
    - Increased operating costs
    - Financial penalties
  • Identify the intangible goodwill, compliance and safety - Impact on customers
    - Impact on staff
    - Impact on business partners
    - Impact on health & safety
    - Impact on compliance
  • Estimate the total impact of downtime
  • Develop business down time tolerance
  • Develop recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) tiers
  • Identify appropriate (right-sized) recovery time objectives for each service
