How do you protect information in the event of an Event? Is this part of your business continuity plan? You do have a business continuity plan, right? Do you have a process to safeguard information you will need to resume operation?
“Second Black Box Eludes Search Teams,” The Wall Street Journal, November 3, 2018 A6. Divers are still searching for the cockpit voice recorder following the crash of Lion Air flight 610 in Indonesia.
Planes carry two “black boxes,” one a flight data recorder (which captures a lot of equipment operating data) and the other a cockpit voice recorder (which captures conversation in the cockpit). The information on these two boxes (which are actually neon orange) is used to determine the cause of a crash.
What information does your company generate that you would need to run your business following an “Event,” such as a computer crash or a hurricane, or whatever? Is that part of your normal operating policies and procedures? If you can’t get to that information, can you restart or run your business?
Is this an Information point (protecting information) , or a Governance point (having processes and procedures to protect mission-critical information), or a Compliance with policies and procedures?
