Business operations can be impacted by several events including environmental disasters, planned attacks, system failures, and information security breaches.  During a public emergency, your organization may have additional demands placed on it.  In addition, cybercriminals and adversaries can try to take advantage of the situation.

 Regardless of the type of emergency, organizations need to identify the essential personnel and business functions for the organization.  Disasters and disruptions that require a disaster recovery (DR) or Business Continuity (BC) response can take many forms.  When challenging situations arise, SDI Presence rises to meet them.  We help our clients build their Incident Response Plans and their DR/BC processes to meet these situations and threats so that they can maintain functionality and operational effectiveness.

Furthermore, as technology changes, we help our clients adapt their strategies, plans, and processes to the latest technologies and challenges. With evolving technologies like virtualization, replication, global load balancing, backups to disk, cloud solutions, and system migrations to the cloud, there is no “one size fits all” approach to DR and BC. Each environment is unique and requires its own unique solution. Impacts on systems are different.  Remote access is changing.  Some organizations, like public safety, may need more traditional data-center solutions, while others benefit more from remote/decentralized solutions.

When the City of Chicago was caught ill-equipped for large-scale teleworking during the coronavirus quarantine, SDI helped the City make the best use of its existing network resources and prioritize planning for future upgrades and situations.

SDI Presence and our partners follow standards and best practices from the Disaster Recovery Institute International (DRII).  We offer services for planning, testing, and updating processes for DR/BC, including services for help desk, data center, and data network.
