What is Disaster Recovery?
Disaster recovery involves a set of policies and procedures which enable the recovery or continuation of your vital technology infrastructure and systems following a natural or human-induced disaster.
Disaster recovery focuses on the IT or technology systems supporting your critical business functions. This differs from business continuity, which involves keeping all essential aspects of a business functioning despite significant disruptive events.
Disaster recovery involves setting recovery point objectives and recovery time objectives. The measures used to achieve these goals are categorized as preventative, corrective and detective measures.
Preventative measures aim to actively stop negative cases from occuring, while corrective measures aim to repair and maintain critical systems in the event of a disaster, and detective measures aim to discover and preempt negative cases before they occur.
In short, an effective disaster recovery plan assists with business continuity procedures in the event of a catastrophe, natural or otherwise, through regular checks, exercises and policies which are disseminated through your departments and company as a whole.
