Disaster planning must encompass disasters of all types and sizes: fires, floods, fraud, ransomware, cyber-attacks, power or IT system failure, human error, acts of terror, and other unthinkable scenarios.
While the type of disaster varies, the impact is typical: data and operational downtime that is truly disastrous.
The devastating effect of downtime caused by disaster include irreparable damage to data, reputation, customer relationships, income, and business vitality.
The best offense is a good defense; you must protect your business by understanding your vulnerabilities, safeguarding against the risks, and preparing for the worst possible business disruption with a plan for business continuity and disaster recovery that will shield your data, protect your business, and keep your systems available and reliable no matter what happens.
