The way companies view and approach Disaster Recovery (DR) and Business Continuity (BC) strategies has changed drastically in the past year, largely due to the Protection of Personal Information Act (PoPI) which will come into effect from July 2021. Normally, DR and BC is considered critical in the event of natural disasters, hardware failure and cybercrime in order to ensure business can continue with minimal disruption. However, the pandemic has amplified the need for backup and recovery.
This is because with most employees now working from home (WFH) and the increase in endpoint devices used outside of the traditional office environment, data management requirements will need to be aligned with the PoPI Act. Compliance in the face of all this change is much easier to achieve with the right IT partner who can assist with understanding what data the organisation has, and where it’s stored. Only by effectively understanding their data can companies achieve compliance with the PoPI Act.
