Organisations are under increasing pressure to remain operational in the face of disaster. Cyber attacks, weather phenomena and infrastructural damage can all affect core processes – and without a plan to deal with them, the costs could quickly spiral.
After all, if lines of communication are cut, or systems are knocked offline, it will be almost impossible for managers to relay instructions to their staff.
That’s why you need a clear strategy to help you prepare for worst – as you consider the steps you must take to remain operational in the immediate aftermath and, in the subsequent days and weeks, return to business as usual.
This is something April’s author of the month, Thejendra B.S, knows all too well. In Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity – A quick guide for organisations and managers, he explains everything you need to know about preparing for and recovering from disruptive incidents.
In this blog, we look at his guide in more detail and explain why he’s the ideal person to inform your incident response process.

Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
As technology becomes increasingly embedded in all business functions, organisations must understand the importance of incident response and IT service management.
That means looking at how to make services functional and efficient as well as what to do when something goes wrong.
That’s where Thejendra B.S’s Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity – A quick guide for organisations and business managers comes in.
This book is designed specifically to help small and medium-sized organisations protect their systems and sensitive data in the event of disruption.
Written in an easy-to-follow question-and-answer format, this guide shows you how to build a disaster recovery and business continuity plan that will:
- Keep your information safe in the face of systems failure;
- Safeguard your company from viruses, phishing scams and accidental data loss; and
- Ensure your communication links are secure, and help you stay connected when disaster strikes.
It also highlights the major causes of IT failure, using real-life examples to describe key concepts.
Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity – A quick guide for organisations and business managers is available in physical, eBook, ePub and Kindle formats. Find out which format is right for you with our handy guide.
