Backup and Disaster Recovery
Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR) go hand-in-hand, and while these two seem like interchangeable concepts with similar procedures, there are distinctions. Business Continuity offers a wide array of processes that primarily serve to uphold the essential functions of a business during and after a disaster.
An effective BC plan, for example, should enable an enterprise to resume operations in the midst of a cyber-attack. And at the very least, it should mitigate the damage if it is unable to resume system functionality.
This is how assessment allows an organization to anticipate risks that can influence client satisfaction and consumer journey, which then enables the following:
- Minimize the impact of downtime
- Ensure that the staff and stakeholders stay safe and the operations legal
- Provide situational awareness and lessons
- Be part of the company’s culture where roles are strategically delegated
Disaster Recovery includes the measures and procedures taken to recover one or more applications and IT services during and after an emergency. A data breach, for example, has already occurred before a DR plan can be executed. A detailed DR plan, for instance, functions as part of the Business Continuity Management Framework, which should secure all key business processes.
There should be a precise approach to be taken, as defined in the DR plan, which also enables the Point-of-Contact or dedicated personnel to:
- Mine and obtain the data needed to start the response and regain control
- Save critical time during an emergency
- Resume regular business and recover vital records
- Communicate effectively with employees, suppliers, customers, and other stakeholders
- Organize the staff and assign roles to solve the problem efficiently and effectively
Given these, the importance of a BC/DR policy increases as the threats of a cyber-attack multiply and the tolerance for downtime diminishes. An effective BC/DR plan enables an enterprise to successfully resume system operations, and this is where we come into play.
