What Disaster Recovery IsDisaster recovery is one of the most important aspects of a business continuity plan. It is the assignment of disaster-related tasks, the coordination of the business to respond to a disaster, and ultimately, the plan that dictates how operations will continue as the event passes. In turn, there is a lot of planning that is needed to successfully keep continuity after a disaster. Here are a list of disasters you should be cognizant of:
- Natural disaster - Flood, hurricane, tornado, wildfire, electrical storm, worldwide pandemic; the list goes on and on.
- Human error - Accidental, negligent, or deliberate situation an employee puts the business in which causes a disaster-like result.
- Cyberattack - Data breaches can be some of the worst, especially when people’s sensitive information is involved.
- Failing Hardware - If the right component goes out at the right time it can have devastating effects on your business.
