Business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) planning is important for mitigating potential issues like natural disasters, in-house theft, and targeted cyber-attacks. Any service outage or data loss can affect sales and the future of your enterprise. In addition, this is a requirement for HIPAA Security compliance.
At a minimum, you can address this requirement by following these steps:
- Define the potential business impact of downtime and/or data loss
- Examine existing requirements
- Develop and prioritize a plan of action
- Commit (funding, resources, etc.) to executing that plan
Taking these basic steps will get you on the road to preparing your organization for continuity and disaster recovery.
