#4 Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity

What is Disaster Recovery? Disaster Recovery (DR) is a security strategy involving a set of specific policies and procedures to protect an organization from the effects of events that have a significant negative impact. A DR plan is essential to your organization as it helps determine how you’ll stay operational during mission-critical needs. The plan will document necessary preparations for unforeseen risks such as restoring servers from backups or securing local networks to continue with daily operations.

Having a secure backup system in place can help you formulate your DR plan. Carolinas IT uses cloud-based backup and recovery programs for several clients. Additionally, clients have hardware on-site for retention and immediate restores of their network.

Business Continuity helps your organization plan for events that could impede the success of your business. Business Continuity addresses issues such as what happens when key employees leave the company or if your company is a victim of a malware attack. Securing your network and files are essential steps you should take to ensure that everything will be “business as usual” when such events occur.
