How to Create Operational Resilience Together
Too many companies key services go down and cannot be recovered at the speed to meet their business need, often not considering their appetite for business risk or reflecting their IT Risk stance. Consider the retailer who wants their website back up in 5 minutes and yet they have an 8 hour SLA on the hardware and a 16-hour database rebuild.
The impact from outages is real and is often both human and financial. The harsh reality is that we are unable to travel, unable to access money, and even worse, hospitals cannot treat patients and we need to create real Operational Resilience.
