|Our Disaster Recovery (DR)/Business Continuity
Planning (BCP) service offering is geared towards clients who
have now built a substantial base in India and should start
thinking about how to de-risk the operation "within"
India. This could also include recommendations of "second
center or location" in India
DR/BCP exercises usually start by taking stock of the
risks/threats and then devising appropriate mitigation processes.
A major part of the disaster recovery planning process is
the assessment of the potential risks to the organization
which could result in the disasters or emergency situations
themselves. It is necessary to consider all the possible incident
types, as well as and the impact each may have on the organization's
ability to continue to deliver its normal business services.
This can be complex and demanding. To assist in this area
therefore there are a number of tools available aligned to
various international standards.
Part of the risk process is to review the types of disruptive
events that can affect the normal running of the organization.
There are many potential disruptive events and the impact
and probability level must be assessed to give a sound basis
for progress. We have categorized the risks that should be
discussed and mitigated as a part of a good DR/BCP plan as
1. Environmental Disasters
