Why Read This
According to Forrester's recent survey of 2,803 IT decision-makers, improving their business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) capabilities is the No. 1 priority for SMBs and the second highest priority for enterprises for the next 12 months. The scope of BC/DR programs is growing also; mature BC/DR programs address all sources of downtime — including mundane power outages and weather-related disruptions, not just rare, catastrophic disasters. Security and risk professionals should take advantage of this increased visibility as the economic recovery slowly thaws IT budgets to improve the BC/DR's organizational and process maturity for the long term.
