Backup & Disaster recovery


In the event of a cyber-attack, do you know how long it will take to fully or partially restore your systems?

It’s an unfortunate truth that you and your company will have to try and recover lost data if a ransomware attack is successful against you. To prepare against this you will need backup and disaster recovery solution you can rely on when you need it most.

Not all systems are equal though and there are a few considerations to be made:

Where is the data getting backed up to?

- As with most IT systems, this process is quickly being moved over to cloud. Long gone are the days of having a physical server or hard drive in the office to store those backups.

What data is getting backed up?

- Having a central store for all your files is the best way to make sure you’re backing up as much data as possible.
- Make sure your staff know if their computers are being backed up and establish clear guidelines on the right and wrong places for staff to store their files.

What is the recovery time?

- Think about which files and systems are the most critical and make a plan for what needs to be restored first in an emergency. 

Disaster Recovery:

- Ransomware is only one threat to your business. Threats can be anything from physical security and theft to Natural disasters like flooding or earthquakes. It’s best to cover your bases and make sure you’re prepared for the worst rather than being caught short and paying the price.
