Having a disaster recovery plan is vital to any one or even any business. This applies to all. Any device that is connected to the Internet is susceptible to a data breach. Most don’t even think about what happens next until the attack actually happens to them. And by that time all could be stolen and lost forever.
One of the most important things to do in any scenario is to be proactive versus reactive. When looking at a disaster recovery plan you need to look at a few things. One thing is to ensure you have the proper security software on any and all devices that are connected to the Internet. Make sure you are up to date with any antivirus software as well as ransomware software. Make sure you run the software frequently to check for any suspicious activity. If you don’t have time to do this then hire a local I.T. Company to manage this for you.
Second you will need to ensure that you have the proper backup solution. The advice we give many is that you should implement more than 2 backup solutions within your business and or home. You should have a physical onsite backup, cloud backup, remote offsite backup, and a storage backup device that is not connected to the internet and or your network. For business continuity you will need to review and invest in the proper backup solutions for your business.
Look at what each backup solution provides. If you were breached then how long would it take to retrieve your data from each backup solution? A good backup will have your business back up and running within 4-8 hours. Another thing to look at is what you are backing up. A good backup solution will backup the entire network and everything connected to you server. Make sure your backups are actually backing up your data hourly and they have not failed. If you don’t have time to do this then hire a local I.T. Company to manage this for you.
