Business leaders understand the importance of emergency preparedness. From natural disasters to cyberattacks, a crisis can emerge quickly and have dire consequences if the organization doesn’t have a plan to mitigate interruptions and keep operations going. Any amount of downtime can be detrimental to your customers. Disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) has significantly evolved from the days of copying data from point A to point B – it’s now mission critical and incredibly sophisticated. So, what do you need to know when designing your DR and BC plans?
This white paper from DartPoints outlines a modern approach to disaster recovery and business continuity by presenting three questions to consider for DR / BC planning. First, you must know your risks and develop a plan to address each. Second, you need to ensure your employees have a place to work. Third, you must evaluate what, if any changes you need to make regarding where your data and equipment are located.
The paper also provides suggestions and insights for selecting a DR provider.
