Purchasing and maintaining disaster recovery systems  will be a major initiative for firms over the next 12 months. A study by analyst firm Forrester found that 24% of large firms and 15% of small and medium-sized enterprises consider disaster recovery to be a top priority.

"European firms today are aware that they have to examine their business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) implementation. Both enterprises and small- and medium-sized businesses report that upgrading their BC/DR capabilities is at the top of their current priority list," said Rüdiger Krojnewski, Principal Consultant at Forrester.

He said that once the business and IT sides of a company have worked together to identify the business impact of a disaster or disruption, the BC/DR planner and IT need to identify the set of threat events most likely to impact critical operations.
