Business Continuity Plans & Disaster Recovery Plans Prepare Your Business for the Unexpected
Guarding against digital threats is often a top priority for business’ security efforts. To reach this business initiative, disaster recovery planning and business continuity planning are key. By having a solid security foundation from the beginning, companies are much better equipped to handle cyberthreats. In addition to security planning, business continuity planning is a crucial part of an organization’s IT infrastructure. These IT services require solid strategy and protocol.
We follow a five-step approach to business continuity and disaster recovery planning for peace of mind that your business can carry on in the face of a disaster:
- Define business continuity and disaster planning goals
- Identify information assets
- Identify threats
- Design and implement an effective solution
- Maintenance and retrospective
When it comes to business continuity, two key factors underlie planning goals—recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO). RTO tells us the duration of time the system can be “down” before the threat of adverse business impacts becomes reality. RPO is the maximum amount of time that data loss is acceptable. Digital Maelstrom helps your team define RTO and RPO, then implements the optimal security solution to help you achieve and maintain those objectives for a business continuity plan and disaster recovery plan you can count on.
