New Report Focuses on Disaster Unpreparedness

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on January 23, 2014

Meritalk report [presentation] [snipped]:

•”Federal IT professionals give themselves high DR2 grades:
•One in four give their agency an “A” in DR2 preparedness and nearly all give a passing grade
•Despite the high marks, many agencies fail to test their data recovery capabilities:
•In the last 12 months, only 54% of agencies have tested their ability to meet their data recovery service level agreement (SLA)
•Federal IT professionals say agencies should test their DR2 systems twice as often
•Testing is not the only DR2 challenge:
•Data is Growing:  30% of Federal IT professionals say their current  DR2 solution is insufficient today or near its limit
•Backup Onsite:  59% of agencies do not use any form of cloud-based DR2 solutions
•But are agencies actually prepared?
•Only 8% of Federal IT professionals are completely confident that in the event of a natural or man-made incident, their agency could recover 100% of its data required by SLAs.”
