Disaster Recovery

  • Conclusion: The adherence to the recently introduced guidelines under ISO:31000 20181 is key to every ICT manager’s responsibilities and leadership remit as they are key in driving and leading the adoption of risk management guidelines across an organisation due to the overarching responsibilities of creating and protecting value.

    ...
  • Conclusion: The ICT Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is, more often than not, focused on technology providing for redundancy of infrastructure and systems, including data back-up and data recovery.

  • Conclusion: ICT disaster recovery plans (DRPs) have been in place for many years.

  • Conclusion: With the local availability of VMware’s Infrastructure as a Service (vCloud Air), all Australian VMware customers should consider it for self-service dev/test environments, virtual desktops, and more importantly DR as a Service (DRaaS). Savvy CIOs will use low risk, low cost practical experiments to develop in-house skills and experience while
