Disaster Recovery

Fail to plan, plan to fail” - Benjamin Franklin.

Your communication network needs to be up and running should a disaster befall your organization. It is important for even the smallest organization to have a recovery plan in place. Control measures are steps or mechanisms that can reduce or eliminate various threats for organizations. Different types of measures can be included in a disaster recovery plan (DRP) created by Telanet.

Disaster recovery planning is a subset of a larger process known as business continuity planning and includes planning for the full recovery of applications, data, hardware, electronic communications (such as networking) and other IT infrastructure. A business continuity plan (BCP) includes planning for non-IT related aspects such as key personnel, facilities, crisis communication and reputation protection, and should refer to the disaster recovery plan (DRP) for IT related infrastructure recovery / continuity. IT disaster recovery control measures can be classified into the following three types:

  • Preventive measures - Controls aimed at preventing an event from occurring.
  • Detective measures - Controls aimed at detecting or discovering unwanted events.
  • Corrective measures - Controls aimed at correcting or restoring the system after a disaster or an event.

Good disaster recovery plan measures dictate that these three types of controls be documented and exercised regularly. Let our team of experts come up with the perfect plan for your organization.
