Council's Data Recovery Capability Called Into Question

As the long-running general election campaign finally comes to an end, a disaster recovery specialist has voiced concerns over council’s’ disaster recovery (DR) preparedness in safeguarding electoral data, IT Pro reported this week.

Almost half - 40% - of councils in London have admitted to not testing their DR procedures that surround the data at this critical time.

The news came to light following Freedom of Information (FoI) requests sent to 32 councils. Of the council’s questioned, three failed to respond and two refused to answer, both claiming the questions were outside FoI requirements.

However, 13 of the council’s obliged the backup provider, admitting that they haven’t tested their disaster recovery capabilities in the past year.

Councils’ recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) - which concern the restoration of data following a failure - were also called into question.

While most of the councils said they could retrieve data in 24 hours, others said it would take up to a week, while one said the process could take around a fortnight.

Annual tests are required to check systems are up to scratch. R3 Data Recovery are experts in the recovery of lost data from failed devices, we also offer secure online data backup facilities and proactive data management for clients both SME’s and home users.

What Our Customers Say About Us

My son damaged a USB flash that contained weeks of coursework. R3 were amazing from start to finish:

Accurate quote, but asking for the details before confirming the quote. That was very competitive.

Professional communication throughout, and with confirmation of receipt even on a Saturday, recovery updates and dispatch of the data back to me. Invoicing and payment was easy also.
