If you have ever had a debate about whether your organisation should use cloud computing then a discussion of the risks of cloud computing will have been a significant part of it. In doing so, we often fall into a simple logical trap.
This is the thirteenth posting in my series on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). In a recent post I looked at 5 myths about BYOD that I had come across a lot. Kenneth quite rightly pointed out that I had looked at only technology related myths, and challenged me to look at more business related ones, as he believed that they were just as important. He is quite right, though because of my day job I wasn’t running into as many of that kind of myth. He helpfully got me started with some suggestions in a comment on my BYOD myths post.
I bet that in the wake of Tuesday’s devastating earthquake in Christchurch many organisations are reviewing their Disaster Recovery (DR) and Business Continuity Planning (BCP) situations.
My experience is that most organisations – especially private enterprises – do not give disaster recovery and business continuity enough attention. What underlies this lack of attention are a number of attitudes towards disaster recovery and business continuity planning which hopefully will be challenged by our experiences of the Christchurch earthquake.
