When the lights go out - And they will: CodeBlue pilots free data resiliency audit service

"On the one hand, John Key is calling for an inquiry, but Vector chairman Michael Stiassny says that power cuts are a part of life and that Aucklanders should get used to it.”

In response to the October power outage in Auckland, IT services company CodeBlue is piloting a no cost, data resilience strategic audit for qualifying Auckland companies and organisations.

CodeBlue general manager Ian Funnell says the audit is available to organisations with between 20 and 300 IT users.

“It seems likely that power outages are going to continue,” he says.

"On the one hand, John Key is calling for an inquiry, but Vector chairman Michael Stiassny says that power cuts are a part of life and that Aucklanders should get used to it.”

He says CodeBlue's view is that businesses should accept the risk and plan for it.

“We've developed a sophisticated audit process for our existing managed services customers," he adds.

"Now, we making that service available to non-CodeBlue customers.

“It's a constructive way for us to begin a relationship with prospective customers which fit into our target market, which is mid-sized companies starting at about 20 IT seats.

“Basically, it's about establishing the sweet spot between acceptable and unacceptable risk. Our audit establishes the existing level of back up and data resilience. It's a risk management exercise.”
