Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery Services

Over 90 percent of organisations that experience a significant or catastrophic data loss are no longer in business two years later according to the University of London-Research Centre.

80% of organisations without a Business Continuity Plan will not survive a major event.

And in our experience, roughly one third of backup/recover solutions do not do what their owners think they are doing.

Increasingly third parties such as banks, insurers, key customers, key suppliers and financiers are requiring businesses to have and demonstrate a plan to remain in production in the event of a range of significant adverse events.

What we do:

Assessment

Think I.T. will assess your enterprise’s level of exposure to loss of data and IT productivity from a range of adverse event profiles

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning

We will work with you to formulate a BC/DR plan that addresses both the vulnerabilities identified in the Assessment process, and the specific requirements placed on your enterprise by a key third party such as a customer, prospective customer, insurer or regulatory body.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Solution Design

We will provide detailed design for the technical solution required to support the BC/DR Plan. This describes the hardware, software, communications links, third-party services and implementation services that make up the solution as well as defining the ongoing roles of all concerned.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Solution Implementation

Think I.T. will implement, test and document your Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Solution. This may have been designed by Think I.T. as described above, or by another consulting practice.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Solution Audit

Think I.T. will compare your existing Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plan with the actual outcomes achievable from your enterprise’s Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Solution as it stands today. The resulting report identifies any gaps between the two and makes recommendations for remediation. 

Ethical standards note: We will not audit a Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Solution we have built, and we must exclude ourselves from charging to make any of the improvements or remediation we recommend when we have audited a solution built or maintained by another provider.
