Could you survive the IT apocalypse?
Mention doomsday to the average Joe and they will probably conjure up a religiously inspired image of the world coming to an end. Seen through the eyes of the average IT manager, however, the doomsday picture is far more likely to be one of Distributed Denial of Service attacks, data breaches and catastrophic interruptions to the business. These doomsday scenarios are not the stuff of Hollywood screenwriters, they are very real indeed. That said, while they may fulfill the dictionary definition of being ‘a time or event of crisis or great danger’ none have to be the end of days as far as your organisation is concerned. The IT apocalypse can be avoided just as long as you have a plan.
