Disaster Recovery


When planning RTO (‘Recovery Time Objective’)/RPO (Recovery Point Objective) you need to consider the various attack types and disaster scenarios.

  • Ransomware
  • Hurricane
  • Fire
  • Storm
  • Vandalism
  • Electrical Loss
  • Internet Outage on-prem or cloud based

When considering systems to include, always account for enough devices to “stand up” a small office somewhere.

  • Desktop or Laptop workstations
  • Printer
  • Micro Server
  • Storage device
  • Access Points
  • Router, Firewall & Internet Connection

Odd devices to add to your DR plan

  • Postage meters, these devices typically house the encryption key and digital storage of the funds on the brain of the machine.

Here’s a sample diagram that I maintain at my desk as a quick reference in the event that we need to perform an emergency recovery or need to activate a disaster recovery plan.

How can we help?
