Dubai conducts SDRS feasibility study
Dubai, November 25, 2013
Dubai Smart Government (DSG) has begun conducting a feasibility study to understand and evaluate the current capabilities and needs for a shared disaster recovery site (SDRS) among Dubai Government entities.
It is being done in compliance with the recent Dubai Government Information Security Regulation among 31 government entities to manage a secure government information security environment, ensure business continuity and contribute to the sustainable development of Dubai as a smart city.
The objectives of the feasibility study are to identify pros and cons including implementation, location and operational costs of a Dubai Government SDRS.
Ahmad Bin Humaidan, the director general of Dubai Smart Government and chairman of Dubai Government’s Information Security Committee, said it is aimed at devising an integrated strategy that would lead to a unified policy for protecting the government’s information and information systems and at providing a reliable environment for storing and recovering such information and information systems based on the world’s best practices.
"The nature of the upcoming stage which depends on the provision of government services through smart devices for our citizens’ happiness necessitates us to ensure that these services and our back-end government ICT services are safe, protected and backed-up with the aim of gaining our customers’ satisfaction and trust," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
