It is crucial to identify, measure, validate and assess the risks data center infrastructure and application, ultimately affecting the business, which can be caused by loadbearing failure, redundancy failure, connectivity, supply chain, site, geophysics, hazard and/or numerous other factors. Proper assessment of the potential risks clarifies the necessity of a DR and set the foundation of its proper implementation.

DR Assessment

Many organizations have implemented DR, however, after careful evaluation or occurrence of actual disasters they will be notified that their DR is not in-line disaster prevention and recovery parameters suited for their specific risk potentials, hence it becomes a certain obligation for TechXact experts to thoroughly evaluate the reliability and effectiveness of the DR in place first hand.

BS 25999 and ISO 22301

British Standard Institute (BSI) has framed as standard for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery for corporate Data Centers and IT systems. BS 25999 provides a basis for understanding, developing and implementing business continuity within the organization integrating risk management disciplines and processes with business continuity and provides confidence in business-to-business and business-to-customer dealings. BS 25999 is written in two parts. The foundation of ISO 22301 emergence is practically based on BS 25999-2.

Part 1, the Code of Practice, outlines the standard’s overall objectives, guidance and recommendations.

Part 2, the Specification, details the activities that should be completed in order to meet business continuity objectives within the context of an organization’s risk management philosophy.

Part 2 is designed to be "auditable", while only objective, measurable requirements are included in the specification.
