Disaster Recovery and Backups
You must have a disaster recovery plan in place as part of your Cyber Security strategy. You must consider all aspects of continuity to ensure that your business will continue to function in the event of an attack. This means you must also protect your data. Without this, your business is at considerable risk.
Cyber-attacks can result in varying degrees of disruption – from loss of productivity to a complete loss of data in the most extreme cases, which could result in the business being wound down. Fortunately, this has never been the case for any of our clients, but is not unheard of. Often, it is not as a direct result of the attack either – it can happen indirectly, through lessened cashflow or the damage created to relationships with suppliers and clients, for example. It’s a real problem.
