Monthly Webinar

Building a Resiliency Program

Sponsored by eBRPWednesday, October 19, 2011 at 2:00 PM

All organizations face risks. Exposure to risks can lead to a drop in productivity, decreased cost effectiveness, reduced quality, damaged reputations, and lost earning potential. Your Risk Management effort should focus on identifying vulnerabilities and prioritizing mitigation efforts based on both perceived consequences and cost-benefit analyses.

Residual risks - what remains after mitigation efforts - are the focus of Business Continuity Management (BCM). The traditional BCM lifecycle (Risk Assessment, BIA, Planning, Testing and Maintenance) often yields a plan centric approach to BCM.

Plan-centric BCM, using scenarios or other narrow-focused formats, may satisfy audit and compliance requirements, but rarely produces actionable plans that are viable during a real disruption.

2012 Study on BC Preparedness

Two New White Papers - Sponsored by Sungard

Managing Recovery - Most organizations lack three fundamental components essential to managing recovery from a disaster: continually updated recovery processes, staff availability for test and recovery, and on-staff recovery expertise. Finding the right service provider with the experience necessary to deliver effective recovery management cover that gap effectively and efficiently.

Best Cloud Practices For Cloud-Based Recovery - Managing recovery effectively is complex. A fully managed recovery solution removes the burden of that complexity from an IT organization. And when the recovery solution leverages modernized data movement technologies and a range of secure cloud and virtual infrastructures, the advantages are significant: higher availability, better performance, and lower cost.

Webinar: Business Units vs. IT – Who is Best Prepared for a Disaster?

Sponsored by 21st Century SoftwareWednesday, October 12, 2011 at 11:00 AM EDT

Mission-critical data isn't getting the protection it deserves. A major reason is the failure of management to recognize the magnitude of the risks and the true ability of their organizations to respond. A lack of communication between those responsible for applications and storage allows undetected interdependencies to develop, creating disaster recovery gaps. Drawing on recent research, this webinar will examine the current state of DR preparedness and offer suggestions for providing your organization with robust protection that is aligned with your business goals.

Online Exclusive

In-House or a Service Provider for Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity?

Written by Marc Langer

While there is no denying the importance of disaster recovery/business continuity (DR/BC) planning for any enterprise that wants to minimize the impact of unplanned disruptions, it is also a given that there is no one right way to achieve an effective DR/BC strategy. An organization's specific recovery time objectives will drive the selection and allocation of technologies, personnel and facilities best suited to its own DR/BC requirements. Beyond choosing the right combination of tape-, disk- or cloud-based backup, for most organizations the overall approach to disaster recovery involves an even more fundamental decision: whether to manage and perform the entire process in-house or to outsource selected functions to a qualified service provider.
