    Government Auditor finds Disaster Recovery Plans fall short

    Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity Audit Recommendations

    Goverment Auditior finds Disaster Recovery Plans fall shorA government auditor has provided recommendations to government agencies after concluding that their disaster recovery processes are not sufficient to recover and restore critical IT systems following disruptions.

    The top five recommendations were:

    1. Create a "collaborative disaster recovery working group" to provide advice and technical support; share learnings from the disaster recovery tests and exercises undertaken; coordinate disaster recovery requirements for resources shared between agencies; identify, develop, implement, and manage initiatives impacting multiple agencies; and coordinate funding requests to ensure certain investments and requirements are prioritised.
    2. Perform a gap analysis on their disaster recovery requirements and resource capabilities in order to determine the amount of investment that will be required
    3. Develop and test disaster recovery plans for the IT systems that support critical business functions.
    4. Provide advice and training to staff on specific disaster recovery systems, as well as newly developed frameworks, policies, standards, and procedures to increase awareness and adoption of those systems.
    5. Establish "system obsolescence management processes" in order to identify and manage systems at risk of becoming obsolete; enable strategic planning, lifecycle optimisation, and the development of long-term business cases for system lifecycle support; and provide agency executives with information that will allow them to make risk-based investment decisions.

    Data has many homes - backup critical

    Bakup PolicyCIOs and IT Managers need to consider mandated backup compliance requirements

    Data now lives in more places than ever before and is constantly at risk from not just cybercriminals but clumsy employees too.

    Simply backing up your data is no longer enough to meet today’s complex data protection requirements.

    IT pros need a multipronged approach - a unified business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) solution that can protect all workloads and add immutability safeguards against cybercrimes and human errors.
