CARTOON: What's the milk, bread, and eggs of your disaster recovery plan?

    June 23, 2017
    It’s hurricane season again, so hopefully you’ve prepared by updating your disaster recovery and business continuity plans to be ready for any disaster that might come your way.

    While the character in our cartoon may have taken his boss’s request the wrong way, he had the right idea: Cover the essentials first. What’s the milk, eggs, and bread for your operation? Identify the data you need to stay up and running, and keep it safe and recoverable.

    How solid and actionable will your IT disaster recovery plan be when a natural disaster hits? If you don’t have one or haven’t tested it in a while, it could mean lights out for your mission-critical data.

    While we may not be able to exactly predict a hurricane’s course, you should chart your own course of action for when the unexpected happens. For a few more suggestions on how to batten down the hatches and ensure your business is disaster ready, check out this slideshow from CSO.
