The BRP (business recovery plan) and the BCP (business continuity plan) are of integral importance to each company’s IT department.
These plans are more important than ever, due to international cyber threats.
In fact, a breach of even a portion of the company’s data can be very harmful, but if production were to be stopped, there would be very serious repercussions for an organisation.
Here is a detailed explanation of how to better manage issues with BRP/BCPs.
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 in particular), company executives and managers have become aware of the importance of their information systems.
The business issues are great, and when the IT infrastructure collapses, the entire company is immobilised. 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 unforeseeable circumstances. 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 for the company’s survival. These plans are key points of a company’s IT security policy.
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 ceBoxOS® solution is a great ally in optimising 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 the entire IT system in order to remove the malware and prevent it from spreading. In the event of an interruption to internet service, the terminals will continue to work.
As part of a hardware failure, a simple change of case can recover a user’s data, 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 ceBoxOS® 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.
