Whilst we all wait in anticipation for fake news stories in the paper, joke-themed advertising campaigns and our friends and family members to play pranks on us, one thing this April fool’s day certainly wouldn’t be funny… lost data.
As businesses become more reliant on technology, it is imperative that an IT disaster recovery plan is in place, to ensure protection of critical data and systems, and keep operations running smoothly.
Data can be damaged or lost unexpectedly and for many reasons – hardware failure, human error, malware – and the impact can be unprecedented.
By implementing a disaster recovery plan, businesses have a framework for dealing with incidents that threaten their IT infrastructure, assuring business continuity.
So, what should you consider when creating a disaster recovery plan?
When identifying vulnerabilities it’s important to look at each internal system listed during the 1st step of your disaster recovery plan. What are the functions of your listed internal systems? Outline how disruption could affect each of them and check how long it would take to get any faults fixed.
Investing in technology is key to conducting business today – a disaster recovery plan will protect your investment, and ensure your business bounces back from any unplanned incidents.
