For Computer Weekly, I am writing two linked features looking at the (ongoing) impact of the pandemic.
The first looks at key changes to disaster recovery. This is likely to include new risks, eg from home working, new threats, changes to software, networking and security, as well as to hardware.
But it will also examine the what needs to change in DR planning, for remote and distributed workforces, practical constraints around DR testing, and invoking a DR plan.
The second piece will look at threats to legal and regulatory compliance during the pandemic, principally around data protection and data security.
How have these threats changed, compared with pre-pandemic times, and are there new regulations, or new applications of regulations or laws, that IT directors need to take into account.
Please note, I am happy to receive input for both articles, as they are linked, but if your commentary or interview offer is aimed at one article, do indicate that.
The deadline for input into both articles is 1200hrs, London time, Thursday 11th February. Please contact me by email.
