      DISASTER RECOVERY Planning

      THE THREAT LANDSCAPE

      Disaster recovery is usually considered for protecting against a catastrophic event. Fire, floods and natural disasters are what usually come to mind.

      While plans do need to be made for these threats, there are other threats that can hurt businesses just as badly. These include:

       

      • Theft of IT hardware
      • Server and IT hardware failure
      • Hacking
      • Malicious activity by employees
      • Interruption of internet connectivity

      And then there are viruses and malware. In the age of ransomware, an entire server, with all of your business’ key data, can be rendered useless in minutes.

      Based on Akita’s experience, a business is far more likely to face one of these other threats than a catastrophic event.

      THE DAMAGE OF DATA LOSS

      The effect of losing business data is serious; over half of all businesses that experience major data loss close within two years.

      Then there’s the GDPR dimension to consider. Organisations that lose personal data (through hacking or a malware attack, for example) are in breach of the regulation. Any breach must be reported to the ICO, and should they judge that data loss is through negligence, can lead to fines.

      In some industries, having an effective disaster recovery plan is also a regulatory requirement. Companies that are found lacking can incur fines.

      Often more damaging though is the impact on company reputation. Businesses can find it difficult to trade and attract new business. The cost of winning back customer trust may exceed the cost of recovery by some magnitude.

      It is therefore vital to ensure that an appropriate disaster recovery plan is in place for your business.

      Hosted Desktops

      Running your organisation’s desktops from a cloud environment increases flexibility and security. If a PC is stolen or destroyed, all data is held within the cloud so staff can access their work from another PC or device.

      Hosted VoIP

      A hosted 3CX VoIP phone system can allow for all your business’ calls to be run from staff mobile phones should your office phones be rendered out of action.

      Backup Internet Connection

      Internet outage can be costly for a business. Our 4G backup solution can support IT systems, Wi-Fi and VoIP phones if your main line drops. And as it runs on 4G, it’s far less susceptible to infrastructure damage that can take down other backup solutions.

      Disaster RECOVERY PLANNING

      As the old saying goes ‘fail to plan, plan to fail’. So alongside disaster recovery services, our cyber security consultants can provide comprehensive disaster recovery planning services.

      We understand the importance of protecting your business from disruptions and can assist you in creating a robust disaster recovery plan. Our consultants will conduct a security audit and vulnerability scanning to identify weak points in your IT networks and internal procedures. This then helps us develop effective mitigation strategies to address potential cyber threats and system failures.

      We also provide recommendations for hardware and system improvements to minimize the risk of business disruption linked to natural disasters.

      Additionally, our consultants can offer advice on staff training schemes and communication plans so that your users know exactly what to do should a disaster occur.
