• Financial services firms rely absolutely on the efficient and reliable operation of their IT infrastructures.
IT systems must provide high levels of performance and security, and must be continuously available.
Business downtime can result in lost revenue and reduced productivity, and can damage relationships with clients and trading partners.
You simply cannot afford your IT systems to fail.
• The development of a comprehensive IT recovery plan is essential to ensuring continued operation of your business in the event of disaster, whether natural or the result of a criminal act.
Effective backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) procedures will significantly reduce the impact of an unforseeable disaster on your business and ensure you continue to meet the risk and control standards set by the FSA, Basel II and other financial service regulators.
