When asked, "What is your DR strategy or what policies do you have in place?", the majority of business owners respond with, "What is DR?".
We get it - planning for, and investing in, technologies or services to protect your organization from a "disaster" is a difficult decision (and spend) to make.
Unfortunately in today's cyber climate, not having a DR plan in place could be key to a hacker targeting you with their ransomware attack.
Think of it this way: if I'm a hacker trying to install ransomware on some innocent business owners' network, I'm searching for those systems who are NOT backed-up, or do NOT have disaster recovery technologies in place. Why? With the right DR strategy, supported by the right DR technologies, my ransomware attack will be insignificant to this company. They could care less if I accessed and "locked away" their critical data and systems. Why? Because they have a plan in place. They have back-ups, copies, snapshots, with encryption and fail-safes that ensure no hacker is ever able to completely infiltrate and paralyze their organization.
