How can I manage the business recovery plan and business continuity plan with ceBox®?

The BRP (business recovery plan) and the BCP (business continuity plan) are two well-known issues in IT departments.

Now more than ever, this is due to international cyber threats.

In fact, a breach of even a portion of the company’s data can be very harmful, but a shutdown of production can also have very serious repercussions for an organization.

Here’s a detailed explanation of how to better manage issues with BRP/BCP!

Background and issues of the implementation of business continuity and recovery plans

Background

In just a few decades, the vast majority of companies have become almost entirely dependent on IT resources.

In fact, since certain events (such as the September 11 attacks, especially), company executives and managers have become aware of the importance of their information system.

The business issues are great, and when the IT collapses, the entire company is immobilized. This is why IT departments are increasingly preparing business continuity and recovery plans (BCP and BRP, respectively).

These plans aim to ensure business sustainability in the event of force majeure. The business continuity plan guarantees the company’s survival after a disaster affecting the information system.

The CIO must then restart activity as quickly as possible with minimal data loss. The business recovery plan, on the other hand, must switch on a recovery system capable of supporting the IT needs necessary to the company’s survival. These plans are key points of a company’s IT security policy.

Issues

Need for a recovery information system in the event of a disaster

Management of IT resources time-consuming but vital

Difficulty delivering backup terminals that meet users’ expectations

Need to deploy very quickly to limit the loss of income/cost of delay

The ceBox® solution is a great ally in optimizing your business continuity plan and allows for extremely simple and quick business recovery for terminals.

As part of a business continuity plan, the solution guarantees continuity of production, even in the event of a virus attack, simply by restarting the user’s computer.

In the event of a cyberattack, the CIO can decide to restart all the IT in order to get rid of the malware and prevent it from spreading. In the event of an interruption in Internet service, the terminals will continue to work.

As part of a hardware failure, a simple change of case can recover a user’s environment, including their applications and settings: The terminal image (OS + applications) can be redeployed in just a few minutes, making it possible for the user to quickly resume their work without data loss.

As part of the business activity, the ceBox® solution makes it possible to redeploy all of the desktop on one or more new sites in just a few minutes, with the possibility of Wisper providing a buffer stock to D+1.

Manage a business recovery plan following an onsite incident in 3 steps with ceBox®

1. Deploy ceBox® to the backup site

Following a major incident at the main site, the CIO makes the decision to deploy ceBox® terminals to a backup site. The IT department must then deploy the ceBox® to the backup site; connect power, accessories, and network cables; and just start everything up.

2. Deploy the OS and applications on the terminals

From the ceBox® centralized management dashboard, the IT department can remotely deploy the various OS and applications to the various terminals of the backup site. The terminals will have the latest Windows and software versions, thus preventing potential security breaches. The CIO can manage the entire deployment remotely.

3. Restart business

Users can take possession of their temporary workspace, recover their regular environment, and work on terminals identical to those of the main site affected by the incident. The CIO can remotely manage potential problems from the ceBox® centralized management dashboard. For example, they can change the image deployed to the terminals (in the event that errors were made during the emergency) and help users thanks to the native remote management of the ceBox® solution.
