Ensuring data security, ensuring systems availability and having an action plan in case of computer disasters are essential steps for a company’s IT area. There is no point in thinking that disasters only happen to others, as we currently live in an era in which threats proliferate every day and where attacks are increasingly unpredictable. The disaster recovery plan is, therefore, a tool increasingly used in companies, but there is still a lot of ignorance regarding this topic. For this reason, we have prepared a checklist so that you can quickly check if your company is prepared to recover from a disaster!
Your company is well prepared if you are proactive
It is important to take a proactive action, as only with a previously planned action it’s possible to react in a timely manner. Implement preventive ways to prevent problems that put your company’s safety at risk and stop it for an indefinite period. Using antivirus and backing up frequently to the Cloud are two examples of preventive ways that will make all the difference in the event of a computer attack.
Your company is well prepared if automate as many tasks as possible
Many tasks in the area of information technology are quite repetitive, which leads to demotivation on the part of human resources. Automating processes is a way to reduce IT costs, since it is not necessary to highlight a collaborator to be exclusively dedicated to monotonous tasks. Automation reduces the time it takes to perform tasks and decreases the likelihood of human error. This is one of the most effective safety precautions you can implement.
Your company is well prepared if you regularly analyze all risks
The IT manager must analyze all the risks, threats and vulnerabilities of the entire IT system with some frequency, as well as of the entire surrounding geographical area. The purpose of this step is to identify all possible flaws that could compromise business continuity in the event of a computer disaster or a hacker attack.
Your company is well prepared if you use a disaster recovery solution
We are dependent on technology and there is no denying this. Despite being increasingly evolved, unfortunately there are still no 100% safe solutions, so the systems and infrastructures of companies are every day exposed to risks of a human nature, risks of mechanical failures and risks of natural disasters. For this reason, it is increasingly important to implement a disaster recovery solution that combines the policies and procedures necessary to ensure the recovery of information and the rapid return to normality in the event of a disaster or computer attack.
