Prepare for rains and prepare for dangers
The rapid development of Internet application technology in China is accelerating the construction of an Ecosphere centered on Internet commerce. In order to provide services to users uninterruptedly all day, enterprises must ensure the stable and reliable operation of their shopping websites, especially during the annual "Double 11" shopping crazy festival, enterprises must ensure the continuity of their e-commerce websites'external services. Therefore, business continuity management has been attached great importance by more and more enterprises, including e-commerce.
In the past ten years, although business continuity management has been applied more and more in large enterprises such as finance and telecommunications in China, its application scope is still limited to a few key areas. More and more industries do not have a high awareness of business continuity management, and have not yet realized the close relationship between business continuity management and its survival and development. 。
In fact, in many major disasters, such as "Wenchuan earthquake, 911 terrorist attacks, Hurricane Katrina", many enterprises have suffered irreparable losses because they have not established business continuity management system and business continuity plan.
On the other hand, with the continuous improvement of China's social informationization index, the vigorous development of cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence and other frontier technologies, which bring many conveniences to human life and production, at the same time, it is also subjected to more and more network attacks, extortion virus, fishing software and other rampant threats. How to ensure the organization's information security and business continuity, so that the organization calmly cope with all kinds of catastrophes and minor disasters, is the common challenge faced by most enterprises.
Disaster recovery (disaster preparedness) plays an important role in realizing organizational business continuity. Therefore, it is very meaningful to study and discuss the development of disaster preparedness technology, summarize various practical and effective disaster preparedness schemes and their implementation experience for relevant practitioners in all walks of life to refer to in practice. Matter. As a long-term practitioner in the field of disaster preparedness in China, the Info2 company can devote so much time to organizing many experienced experts to sum up their valuable knowledge and experience accumulated in the practice of disaster preparedness projects in various industries for a long time, and to compile a white paper on disaster preparedness technology and share it selflessly, which is really valuable.
DRI International is a non-profit academic institution dedicated to promoting knowledge of business continuity and disaster recovery through professional training activities, and accrediting individuals with international authority in the field of BC/DR.
As the head of DRI China, I have been privileged to participate in and witness the disaster preparedness construction and development of all walks of life in China for many years. From the perspective of business continuity management, I have provided my own suggestions for disaster preparedness construction of many enterprises and helped enterprises understand business continuity management methods for disaster preparedness. Important guiding significance of preparatory construction. In particular, I am very glad to cooperate with professional companies like the Info2, which focus on disaster preparedness product development and service and master core disaster preparedness technology, to promote business continuity management and disaster preparedness technology knowledge and application in various industries, to help enterprises prepare for various emergencies, and to ensure that enterprises have the ability to resist any kind of emergencies. The ability to attack disasters is just what we call "taking precautions and preparing for disaster". This white paper on disaster preparedness technology, which gathers the opinions of experts from all walks of life, covers a wide range of contents and involves a very professional technology. As far as I know, it is rare for China to systematically and comprehensively discuss the professional materials of disaster preparedness technology, and even fewer of them are free and open. Since 2016, Info2 companies have been spending a lot of time organizing experts to compile a white paper on disaster preparedness technology in China, which is selflessly shared by the majority of disaster preparedness practitioners. It really reflects that Info2 companies should play a leading role in disaster preparedness industry.
