DISASTER RECOVERY STRATEGIES
Being hit by an IT failure or a cyber-attack can cause extensive business disruption, but should the worst case happen, ensuring that you have the right plan in place is essential to recovery.
Most businesses have backups of systems in place, should a hardware failure, software corruption or virus attack hit your IT systems. But if these backups are not supported by a comprehensive disaster recovery strategy, then these too can result in lengthy recovery or sometimes complete loss.
BVS ensures that you have a robust disaster recovery procedure in place to minimise your business risk in the event that your IT suffers failure or attack.
