IT Service Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning, Oman

Business continuity planning and disaster recovery management are nowadays of prime importance. Top emphasis has to be placed on IT governance by means of information security management systems and risk management procedures. In recent years, especially Business Continuity and IT Service Continuity have acquired a new, enhanced meaning as the world is facing cyber-attacks, global financial crisis, political changes as well as with natural disasters. These had a most widespread impact and redefined the importance of business continuity planning as well as what business continuity planning has to comprise. In light of the afore-mentioned, the MoD was desirous to enhance its disaster recovery provisions by establishing a total service continuity concept for their high, medium and low risk applications for the most important Military Services (e.g. Air Force, Land Forces, Navy, ITS, NSA, SAF-Signals, etc.). The new secure and HA/FT Multi-site platform is the secure core system providing DR/BC services for the Joint Military Services.
