Teachable Moments in IT

An article caught my eye this week. It involves the unfortunate circumstances in the city of Baltimore, but it’s a valuable lesson to any organization (link below). In short, a combination of ransomware and poorly managed backups wreaked havoc on the City of Baltimore.  The unfortunate situation is a good reminder of how the best tools can fail without the correct processes in place.

 

The valuable lesson? Business continuity isn't a tool, it’s a combination of people, process, and technology.
