Business Continuity – what is a disaster?

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery are topics that most have heard of and like most, dread talking about it. The “it will never happen to me” syndrome is common! Just the other day SystemWise was in a situation that would fall under this topic.

Our electricity supplier notified us that they were going to change our electricity meter and that power to our office at 105 Saughtonhall Drive would be down for possibly up to two hours. Now this is a pretty major outage for us. No power = nothing. No phones, no internet, no cups of teas and worst of all, no microwaved last night’s left overs!!!
