Jan 17, 2017

In the event of a disaster, business continuity requires a broad strategy. It is not enough to simply build a disaster recovery data center. Organizations need a robust program and strategy for recovering critical IT services and business operation if something bad happens.

In this podcast, Martin Gonzalez, a director in KPMG’s CIO Advisory practice, talks with Stan Lepeak about:

  • how firms are approaching and implementing disaster recovery programs – and why it’s best to see the process as a journey rather than a project
  • threat levels organizations are facing in today’s market due to a heighted dependence on technology
  • the importance of a strong change management process in recovering and restoring IT services
  • what organizations might expect to gain from creating and implementing a disaster recovery solution.
