Executive Summary

Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity Plan Released along with Cloud based DR/BC and Security Compliance Templates

The latest Edition of the Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Template, Security Manual and it’s How to Guide for Cloud and Outsourcing.   The focus of these updates is using the Cloud for DR/BC while meeting compliance mandates.

The CEO of Janco, M. Victor Janulaitis said, “IT managers have eagerly implemented cloud applications to reap its many benefits including lower hardware, infrastructure, and energy costs.  Now the focus is on having DR/BC Plans that utilize cloud processing as a top priority.”  He added, “The recent storms in Texas have shown many CIOs that DR/BC at a time when working from home is the norm, processing plans need to be more resilient. With the current editions of our Cloud, DR/BC, and Security Templates we have addressed those needs directly.”

These core documents are delivered electronically along with specific infrastructure procedures, job descriptions and electronic forms. In addition, there are over 200 pages of additional supporting materials that can be used by companies to update their existing DR/BC plans and Security protocols.  Being modular in nature, Janco’s full bundle does not need to be implemented.  Rather components of the How to Cloud Guide, DR/BC, and Security Templates can be extracted and added to existing infrastructure and plans.

This Edition has detailed DR/BC activation procedures and implementation work plans. The bundle of three templates provides clear examples of how to get something done quickly and efficiently given the needs of today’s complex operating environments. Any sized organization can benefit from this tool. It is comprehensive and the processes created are concise and easily implemented. There are checklists and examples of what is needed to get systems and networks working quickly.
