Hot Topics

 

Supply Chain Resilience

 

Building a resilient supply chain has become vital. The inter-dependent nature and networks of global businesses (production facilities, operating controls, stock management, transportation, logistics, information and cash-flow) and the implementation of global systems and technologies all combine to create new risks to the business.

 

IT Service Continuity

 

Data Centres can be affected by many events. Power and communications can be disrupted leaving systems unable to deliver. Without adequate solutions, recovery can be difficult. External audits often highlight the lack of preparedness in this area.

 

Data Centre Disaster Recovery (DR) Testing

 

DR plans are usually tested regularly, but are these tests really proving that those DR plans can be relied on to deliver when it counts?
