With heavy snow and cold weather carpeting most of Europe, disruption has broken out across the EU. With temperatures hitting as low as -29C, many roads have been inaccessible, schools and colleges have been shut down and a number of deaths have occurred across the continent as it endures this severe weather.
Has your business been affected by the weather? Are you seeing a loss in transactions and customers or traffic?
Unforeseen events (such as severe weather) could affect your Information and Communication Technology (ICT) services. You need to ensure that you can continue trading regardless, and to achieve this you need to understand the threats and vulnerabilities of your ICT services and how to guard against them.
ISO27031:2011 is the new International Standard that describes the concepts and principles of ICT readiness for business continuity. It covers all the incidents that could impact upon ICT infrastructure and systems and provides a framework of methods and processes of how to deal with them.
