Here at Carden IT Services, we’ve built and implemented disaster recovery and business continuity plans for both large and small companies, and although the details change depending on each of our customers’ specifics, there is a set of essentials that every disaster recovery plan needs.
Business disasters can strike at any time. Whether it’s an office fire that destroys your hardware, a flood which prevents you accessing your workplace, or a ransomware attack which encrypts your data – anything which brings your business to a halt can have a long-lasting impact on your profits and your reputation if you are unable to meet your customers’ needs. Recovering from these disasters quickly, and with no data loss can be the difference between your company surviving or going out of business.
More organisations are using cloud services than ever before. But not all of them are aware of exactly what backups they do and do not provide or what their responsibility is when storing data in the cloud.
Disaster Recovery refers to the planning and implementation of emergency measures to restore an organisation to a minimum level of operation after a “disaster” has affected their critical systems.
