Disastrous Business Continuity Planning

Gavin Whatrup

A Group IT director with nearly 30 years of IT operations experience. Currently working on an Office 365 migration, which will be central to our strategy of tighter collaboration within & between our agencies, as well as with clients and partners. It will also complement our broader use of a portfolio of cloud technologies. Data & analytics are key drivers in developing new insights & services for our clients and our own businesses. Any infrastructure development, be it cloud, on-prem or hybrid, has to allow for data solutions to flow across your organisation, wherever and however it operates. And with new initiatives in the use of Big Data, having an integrated approach to platform & infrastructure will be essential to maximising the ROI. Having strategies around mobility, flexible working & BYOx are key to employee engagement and productivity. However, securing corporate data needs to be front & centre in any such strategy. Having a comprehensive information security policy that incorporates this, should form part of the broader Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) model.
