Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR) are closely related practices. They both support an organization’s ability to remain operational after an adverse event.
As we find ourselves amidst the peak of the 2023 hurricane season, it becomes evident that the world's climate is undergoing changes right before our very eyes. Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) have a higher profile than ever before. This calls for reflection on essential factors that can impact and enhance your business’ preparedness strategy.
My favorite mantra is: “Prepare for, respond to, and recover from any disaster or emergency”. And it goes beyond just communications technology; it's a fundamental aspect of any organizational preparedness plan. Selecting the right focus areas can be challenging, but there are different ways to form a solid BC/DR plan:
Ensuring stable connections is a huge part of BC/DR, and there are ways to ensure your communications infrastructure remains intact. Satellite connectivity can ensure uninterrupted comms, data transmission, and improved coordination – providing a more resilient approach to handling disasters or other emergencies.
Case in point: Utilizing MAVERICK VSAT, Bruce Power – a leader in emergency preparedness – has a critical line of backup communication from their command center. Should a problem arise, operators have the ability to quickly increase their bandwidth, enabling Bruce Power to maintain a robust and multi-faceted emergency response program.
