How the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the demands on disaster recovery and business continuity planning in the public sector
The covid-19 pandemic has changed perceptions of business continuity – in the public sector as much as anywhere. As the lockdown began it became clear that the major disaster recovery priority of the past, to provide an alternative working space when people could not get to their desks, did not apply.
Instead it threw the emphasis onto home and remote working – and continuity: ensuring that people could continue to access networks and applications and do their jobs when any communal workspace was out of bounds.
This UKAuthority's briefing note produced together with Rackspace Technology discusses how the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the demands on disaster recovery and business continuity planning in the public sector and how we use the new perspectives and dimensions it has provided to enhance business continuity in the future
