ENISA report on Business and IT Service Continuity provides global perspective on emerging and existing standards for mitigating security risks to critical processes
Business continuity implies management processes and integrated plans which maintain the continuity of an organisation’s critical processes in the case of a disruptive event. There are a number of emerging, and overlapping, business continuity standards. ENISA’s report utilises the knowledge of these various methods and tools, represents them on an overview process diagramme and compares them to enable organisations to understand which approach and infrastructure best suits their needs. In an effort to overcome the lack of common language across the different standards, the Agency has also produced a glossary which cross references different terms with similar elements.
Why is business continuity important? Emphasising the ever-increasing reliance on ICT in critical business processes, ENISA Executive Director Andrea Pirotti explains the integral role business continuity plays in good management practice and corporate governance: “Disruptive incidents, such as malicious IT attacks or even a simple loss of critical data, call into question an organisation’s ability to continue to provide its key services. Business needs tools to mitigate risk and having an NIS business continuity plan is one step in the right direction.” In addition to being better prepared in the event of a crisis, business continuity has financial benefits. For example, many insurance companies offer discounts to firms with risk assessment and management plans while investors are more attracted to companies able to curb NIS risks.

Auch wenn sich die öffentliche Diskussion rund um Security, Compliance und Datenschutz in der Cloud inzwischen etwas gelegt hat, ist das Thema in deutschen Unternehmen immer noch ein Dauerbrenner. Die Gründe hierfür liegen nicht selten sowohl in einer generellen Unsicherheit bezüglich der Rechtslage als auch in dem fast schon „traditionellen“ Bedürfnis vieler deutscher Unternehmen nach einer lokalen Daten- und Informationsvorhaltung.Weiterlesen
