Disaster Recovery: Expert Planning and Implementation Consultants
When properly planned and implemented, a disaster recovery plan makes possible the retrieval of lost data and the resumption of system operations. Such procedures are a critical part of computer operations at all levels, especially those involving the storage of long-term or permanent records on electronic media. A solid disaster recovery plan may also be critical to the fulfillment of audit requirements and the maintenance of audit trails in fiscal systems.
We take a holistic view of a business’ critical systems, what risks exist, the likelihood of those risks, and what impacts and recovery times are acceptable to the business. We will produce a risk matrix and identify multiple alternative solutions allowing the business to decide on possible trade-offs between the various factors such as cost and system downtime. We have an abundance of experience in not only identifying risks that were previously unexpected, but also in providing innovative recommendations from migrating to the Cloud to policy and security changes.
One of the requirements of the Sarbanes Oxley Act is that systems containing financial data maintained by a publicly traded company be backed up periodically, that the backup media is stored in a secure off-site location and requires that periodic test be run to prove that financial systems can be recovered from backup in the event a disaster strikes. The purpose of the disaster recovery plan is to provide a means to: (1) restore the integrity of the computer systems in the event of a hardware/software failure or physical disaster, and (2) provide a measure of protection against human error or the inadvertent deletion of important files.
