A disaster recovery and business continuity plan is required to safeguard data and services against problems and restore them in the event of failure. It is more complex than backing up files to USB sticks or using a cloud file host. A complete plan should include implementing business continuity solutions, designing your workspace from a business continuity perspective, creating technological resilience, documenting procedures for dealing with disasters, testing disaster recovery plans and implementing recovery procedures.

A good disaster recovery plan aims to avoid downtime for your business, minimize the impact of an unexpected infrastructure or service disruption on your organization, and improve the resiliency of critical business processes so that they're less likely to be interrupted in the event of a disaster.

A disaster recovery plan is crucial for protecting your business operations, data and infrastructure. It can allow you to continue providing the same value to your customers during disasters. In some cases, the business will be completely shut down with little hope of it being restored again - this is why a plan should be in place from when the business starts.

For this reason, a disaster recovery plan should safeguard any data and infrastructure required to maintain SLAs. Data is the lifeblood of your business, so having a way to reliably recover critical business services during an outage is essential. Hardware failure, labor strikes, power outages and other unplanned events can all negatively impact your ability to deliver on your agreements with customers.

When planning your disaster recovery and business continuity plan, what should you keep in mind?

RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective) are measurements that help quantify the level of disruption that your business can tolerate before critical damage occurs.

RTO refers to the amount of time a service or data must be recovered following an outage to avoid serious consequences for the business.

RPO is the amount of time your data can go out of sync following a disaster to remain usable.

An effective disaster recovery solution should accommodate both RTO and RPO. Therefore, determining your business’s RTO and RPO is one of the first steps in building a backup and disaster recovery strategy.
