1. Not Testing a Disaster Recovery Plan
Testing lets businesses prepare for unexpected events and validate their disaster recovery initiatives. IT staff should test every possible scenario — natural disaster, power outage, malicious attack from hackers and so on — so they know how to respond quickly and efficiently.
2. A Disaster Recovery Plan Is Outdated
3. A Disaster Recovery Plan Is Too Dependent on a Cloud Provider
Disaster recovery is pretty much synonymous with the cloud. This technology continuously backs up data and keeps it safe so companies can access it in an emergency. However, over-reliance on a cloud provider brings multiple problems. This is why it’s important for businesses to choose a trustworthy, reputable cloud provider, and one that serves their unique security needs. Vendors should provide companies with a simple way to deploy and manage their software, for example. The cloud is still susceptible to DDoS attacks, hacked interfaces and APIs and data breaches, so companies should opt for a vendor that keeps their data safe at all times.
