IT has brought many benefits to business. However, IT failures can seriously damage your ability to deliver products and services, harm your company’s reputation, and jeopardise your relationship with your customers. In short, poorly managed IT problems could threaten the survival of your business.
Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity shows you how to develop a plan that will:
- keep your information safe in the face of systems failure
- safeguard your company from viruses, phishing scams and accidental data loss
- ensure your communication links are secure, and help you stay connected when disaster strikes.
Highlighting the major causes of IT failure and disaster, the book explains how to establish a disaster recovery plan, helping you to make more effective contingency plans and minimise the risks to your business. Written in a friendly, conversational style, with plenty of real-life examples that make it easy to understand key concepts, it also includes a glossary of terms and useful appendices.
