Business Continuity Plan/Disaster Recovery (ISO 22301) Implementation in Practice

HAS YOUR UNIVERSITY conducted a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) to identify the mission-critical assets for effective protection? What is the basis of your University’s insurance cover? Are you not spending insuring risks that may never materialize and so you could be wasting money? What is your Recovery Time Objective (RTO) for the critical University assets? If a fire broke out at the university in the Server Room, what would be the recovery costs to you and how long would it take to get everything up and running? Good BCP answers these and more questions. When did your University Council and Team last undertake training and or desktop exercise in Enterprise Risk Management and Business Continuity Planning to anticipate and manage disasters?

A case in point:

On 19th October 2018, the Vice-Chancellor at one of the Universities received an emergency phone call at 3:00 pm from the Director of Studies who explained that University’s Server that hosts the University’s Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) System including Students payment statuses had gone down bringing some core aspects of the University operations to a stand-still. Despite having comprehensive Insurance coverage, critical data had been lost. It took over Two Weeks and a lot of admin staff time to recover data and resume operations normally which cost the University greatly with her reputation ruined. Business Continuity Plan would have helped anticipate these disruptions and reduce the recovery time to minimize costs and losses.
