IIA issues IT disaster guidance

The Institute of Internal Auditors has published new guidance on IT disaster recovery intended as a blueprint for action when catastrophe strikes.

David Bentley who led the IIA’s IT committee in developing the guidance, highlighted pre-emptive planning, focus on all systems and leadership as crucial in times of emergency.

Bentley said: ‘The frenetic pace of commerce, the need for round-the-clock, global accessibility and the growing expectations of the marketplace mean that organisations must address – and readdress – the possibility of disaster before it strikes.

‘The role of internal auditors and risk managers in creating the right control culture to ensure business continuity is pivotal. This guidance gives them a blueprint for action.’
