Disaster Recovery Plan

An effective Disaster Recovery plan allows an organization to maintain or quickly resume mission-critical functions following an IT disaster. This could be in the form of data corruption, Malware, viruses, hardware failure of your hard disks or even the theft of your servers. Having a Business Continuity and DR plan in place helps in quick recovery in all of these cases.

Business Continuity

Data Backup

Having a robust, industry standard backup routine for your business data is the key to an effective disaster recovery and business continutiy strategy.

Hardware Failure

An important aspect of any DR Plan is to keep spare (critical) hardware components on-site to reduce to a minimum down-time caused by its failure.

Third Party Vendors

Third party vendors should be made fully aware of the DR Plan as more and more, businesses rely on custom software for their line of business.

Electricity Backup

Mission-critical appliances should be backed-up by more than one power source, such as a Generator and Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS).

Network Security

Network Security plays an essential part in business continuity with a deployment of an effective Anti-Virus/Malware on PC’s and Servers along with a robust Firewall.

Physical Security

Physical security of the Servers is equally important. Consideration needs to be given to risks from fire, flood and theft to ensure business continuity.
