Disaster recovery has never been so easy or important
Disaster recovery has never been more important because at the same time that digital transformation has made most modern enterprises entirely dependent on their IT systems to function, cyber attackers have stepped up their capabilities to go after sensitive data wherever it is found, with most IT leaders reporting major systems outages.
Fortunately, due to the same digital transformation, cloud-based disaster recovery options and services are proliferating and maturing, making it easier and cheaper than ever before for organisations to ensure that if their IT systems are affected by cyber attack or natural disaster, they are either able to keep critical systems running or recover their systems and data quickly after any disruption.
Disaster recovery, therefore, is a key element of business resilience, which is increasingly being recognised as the main goal of cyber defence. But every business is different, so each needs to identify the best route to disaster recovery, starting with a disaster recovery strategy and plan.
