Corsis Confidence Index Finds Many Executives Fooled By Their Own Business Continuity Plan
How confident are you that your business continuity plan will actually work if your business experiences a technological failure? Do you even have a plan? If you do, are you sure it’s being followed?
Data from the Corsis Confidence IndexTM (CCI), a proprietary technology benchmarking standard that measures confidence in a company’s IT operations, shows that while the majority of technology company executives feel that their business continuity plans are adequate, critical details are being overlooked.
Corsis has found that the overwhelming majority of companies being assessed operate under the misconception that they are safe from disruption because they are consistently performing nightly backups. Detailed data from the CCI indicates that while 94% of technology companies had documented Business Continuity plans, and 72% of companies included policies on backing up their critical technologies, only 6% of companies had actually bothered to make sure their backups were working properly and would be useful in the event of a failure.
