3 out of 4 Companies WW Failing in Terms of Disaster Readiness

According to Disaster Recovery Preparedness Council

The Disaster Recovery Preparedness (DRP) Council was started last month by IT business, government and academic leaders with its mission to increase Disaster Recovery Preparedness awareness and improve DR practices.
 
Here are some initial results from the online survey that organizations around the globe have participated in. The Disaster Recovery Preparedness Benchmark (DRPB) Survey was designed to give BC, DR, compliance audit and risk management professionals a measure of their own preparedness in recovering critical IT systems running in virtual environments.
 
Some initial results:
72% of survey participants, or nearly 3 out of 4 companies worldwide, are failing in terms of disaster readiness. 36% lost critical apps, VMs, critical data -files for hours; 11% of the companies lost these for days. The cost of losing critical applications has been estimated by various experts at $5,000 per minute.

Nearly 3 out of 4 at risk of failing to recover from disaster/outage
  • 51% - F
  • 21% - D
  • 21% - C
  • 7% - B
  • 0% - A
Human error, software and hardware failures biggest cause of outage/data loss
  • 54% software failure + network failure
  • 41% human error
  • 28% power failure
  • 15% to weather
Most struggle with DR compliance reporting
  • 70% of companies need to produce DR reports for things such as compliance, while 60% of responding companies find compliance reporting overly difficult, manual and expensive
  • 50% have to manually create DR reports
When companies do test their DR plans, 70% do not pass their own tests.
  • Nearly half of those who test DR plans don't even document the results of their tests
  • Only one-third of those who test determine if they can achieve committed SLAs - (RPO and RTO)
  • Only one in four of those who fail their DR testing, actually re-test as follow up
Most do not have the skills, time or money to test their DR preparedness
  • 61% do not have the skill sets to effectively perform DR tests
  • 37% do not have the time to test their DR
  • 17% say DR is too expensive to test
  • 35% say that each DR test costs between $5,000 - $50,000

Disaster Recovery Preparedness

The DRPB survey provides a benchmarking score from 0-100 that measures the implementation of IT disaster recovery best practices. DRPB benchmarking scores parallel the grading system familiar to most students in North America whereby a score of 90-100 is an A or superior grade; 80-89 is a B or above average grade; 70-79 is a C or average grade and 60-69 is a D or unsatisfactory grade. Below 60, rates as an F, or failing grade.
