Important Elements of an Effective DR Plan
For a business to have an effective DR plan in place in the event of a natural disaster, or even if a user accidentally performs an action that compromises critical files, there are a few elements that an effective disaster recovery plan must have:
- Disaster recovery team: In the event of a major disaster, this assigned group of specialists will be responsible for creating, implementing, and executing an effective plan. This includes knowing how to communicate with each other, employees, vendors and customers in order to get back up running quickly while keeping costs low.
- Risk evaluation: Evaluate potential hazards that could put your organization at risk. Strategize what measures and resources will be needed to resume business in the event of a cyber attack; for example: data protection protocols.
- Business-critical asset identification: The output of business critical asset identification is a good disaster recovery plan including documentation on which systems, applications, data, and other resources are most important for continuity. Also included in the document should be a step by step guide to recover any lost information or damaged hardware
- Backups: Organizations should determine who will perform backups, around-the-clock backup monitoring, what needs to be backed up, and how often. The organization must set a recovery point objective (RPO) that states the frequency of full or incremental data backups during each time period in order for an acceptable amount of downtime after disasters occur. A response plan includes a recovery time objective (RTO), which defines maximum tolerable amounts of system downtimes before disaster strikes.
Testing and optimization: Organizations should constantly test their security and data protection strategies to ensure that they are ready for any cyber-attack and adapting to constant business needs.
