In business continuity management, should you start with what you want or with what you have?
Business no longer controls all its data, now that the data is spread out over systems that could be in-house, in the cloud, or in somebody’s pocket.
The title of this blog post could almost have read “Never send a human to do a machine’s job”.
A while ago, we asked in this blog if World Backup Day was really a good idea. Our logic? If everybody focuses on one day in the year to get their backups right, then spends the other 364 days ignoring the issue, things won’t change for the better.
Power blackouts in business can range from a minor inconvenience to a major threat. Diggers slicing through power cables, extreme weather conditions bringing down power lines, or other local failures can all interrupt the supply of electricity.
Hooray for World Backup Day, you might think, reminding people how important it is to safeguard data and systems.
