How to sleep at night knowing your backup and disaster recovery strategies are at work
January 31, 2019 –
Backups used to be a magnetic tape in your bag on a Friday night, then USB drives, and then came cloud and we all assumed it was being backed up. These days your data is in various locations, new threats appear every day, and traditional IT may not even know what systems departments are using. Join us and learn how to put systems in place to get your backup and disaster recovery (DR) strategy under control and implemented. We’ll provide a framework for identifying and prioritizing the systems and dimensions needed in good backup and DR, covering:
- What is backup and DR?
- What are the dimensions of backup and DR?
- Map your existing processes
- Review processes for potential improvements
- Identify all the critical and non-critical systems
- Prioritize day 1 applications and data
- Look at backup systems that cover cloud and premise software and data
- Discuss RPO, RTO, and retention
- Establish procedures for ongoing use and maintenance of the system
- Look at future technology with an eye towards Backup and DR
