16 tips: Choosing a business continuity service
One of the main facets of a managed business continuity service provider is to offer a selection of disaster recovery services, generally for monthly fees. This E-Guide looks at another aspect of BC/DR managed services: the provision of DR/BC planning services, and offers tips to help you select the best provider, obtain the best deal, and get the best results.
Included in this guide are 16 essential tips for choosing a DR/BC provided, including:
- Determine if your existing business continuity/disaster recovery function is important to the business, and supports its ability to achieve its objectives
- Analyze your current expenditures, including staffing, frequency of scheduled activities such as business impact analyses, risk assessments, plan exercises and training programs
- Determine the level of BC/DR support you need now, and in the future. Be sure to also factor in the potential for regulatory and compliance audits, as this may only happen a few times a year, but is nonetheless very important.
