,
May 23, 2018

Need to prove your value to the C-suite? Build a bulletproof business continuity plan. 54% of organizations have suffered downtime since 2011, according to Arcserv, and Gartner found that between 2015 and 2017, 80% of IT leaders reported an incident requiring a disaster recovery plan. Last year, a failure cost British Airways $112 million. 

In our new webinar, Minimizing Data Disruptions Through Business Continuity Planning, our experts will:

  • Define the scope of data continuity, including disaster recovery and mitigation
  • Discuss common causes of service interruptions
  • Show you how to identify the right data continuity solution for your organization
  • Define tiers of disaster recovery, including multi-tenant DR and full-featured solutions
  • Share strategies for handing complexity and other DR issues

An effective business continuity strategy can provide immense value for your organization — better planning would have saved British Airways millions of dollars.
