Cloud Computing Could Pose Greater Risks to Business Continuity

What were you doing on December 7, 2021?  Amazon Web Services was scrambling to recover from an “incredibly painful” outage in one of their main data centers in northern Virginia.  This outage impacted multiple online services to include Ticketmaster, Spotify, Duolingo and, yes, even Netflix.

In the past few years, we have witnessed how the pandemic has triggered a sudden rush of organizations and businesses moving data and services to the cloud.  The trend shows no signs of slowing. Cloud computing boasts increased speed, greater efficiency, and reduced overhead costs.  What’s not to love?

Consider for a moment that numerous banking institutions and airlines are joining the rush to cloud migration.  HSBC Bank penned a deal with Amazon Web Services in 2020 and Google has signed Goldman Sachs and Lufthansa Airlines. What happens when cloud services, which are now hosting things integral to the running of banks and major transportation systems and companies, fail?

Nothing good.

Is cloud migration right for your organization?  Perhaps, but don’t take that leap until you are fully versed into exactly what regulatory predicaments and continuity of business challenges  you are jumping.

Concerned about digital resilience as a part of your own business continuity and disaster recovery plans? Consider connecting with the Disaster Recovery Journal.  Their fall conference starts September 11th.
