What is disaster recovery?

Disaster Recovery is the process, policies and procedures related to preparing a company to restore its technology infrastructure after a natural or man-made disaster. Disaster Recovery is aligned with Business Continuity. While Business Continuity involves planning to keep all aspects of a business functioning through disruptive events, Disaster Recovery focuses on the IT systems that support business functions.

Disaster Recovery defines the processes and procedures your company will use to retrieve data, and restore business functions back to full operation. Business Continuity is a set of plans which define potential risks that may happen to your company, and outlines the safeguards to mitigate these risks. Disasters may be natural, such as fires or floods, or man-made, such as cyber-attacks, or sabotaged systems caused by displeased employees.

How we can help

I.S. Partners, LLC will assist you in creating a sound Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plan, or evaluating your existing contingency plans. We will determine the objectives of the policies, and test the procedures to ensure they meet required protocols for your company to sufficiently recover from any type of disaster. We will analyze your company’s infrastructure to determine the risks that could interrupt operations, and test established procedures to ensure that they are relevant to your changing business needs.

Designing an effective plan

Disasters can affect all types of information technology systems such as the hardware, software, Internet connectivity and data. When constructing a disaster recovery plan, your company needs to take into account that one or several of these components may be compromised. You should develop strategies to backup critical data, establish a redundant system, and have tailored solutions for hardware and software restoration. An effective plan will:

  • Identify weakness
  • Minimize the duration of a serious disruption to business operations
  • Facilitate effective coordination of recovery tasks
  • Reduce the complexity of the recovery effort
