Downtime 'only 10 hours per year'

In a testament to the good work of those in business continuity jobs, average network downtime each year is only ten hours, a report into the resilience of communications networks reveals.

The research, commissioned by the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA), finds that network access - essential for IT professionals - proved robust, as availability stood at 99.9 per cent.

The key threats to continuity are hardware, software, location and personnel incidents, but most of the respondents described their risk management procedures as "fairly resilient" and said this is an important feature of their profession.

Andrea Pirotti, the executive director of ENISA, states: "It was reassuring to find how well both small and bigger network operators and service providers manage their network availability."

The ENISA was founded to offer advice and recommendations to EU member states, as well as raise awareness on data security issues.
