Business Continuity Planning Is Vital
In 2012, as part of a research survey, ESG asked IT professionals what specific data protection challenges they were facing.1 Thirty-six percent of the respondents indicated that implementing or improving business continuity and disaster recovery was a process and technology challenge they faced.
