Can you recover from a data breach?

The number of data breaches is increasing at an alarming rate and can happen when you least expect them.  Your business’s backup strategy is a very important piece of the cybersecurity pie. If a data breach occurs, it is important to remember that time is of the essence. There are many factors to consider when designing your backup and disaster recovery plan.

Some business owners believe their data is being backed up, but that is not always the case. Many times, while onboarding a new client, we discover that their backups have not been working for weeks. If your I.T. provider is not monitoring your backups for completion and/or corruption, you may be exposed to cyber-attacks and could be faced with significant business disruption.

Additionally, when considering your backup needs ICC will review two main factors: RTO and RPO.

  • RTO (Recovery Time Objective): This refers to the amount of time it will take to restore data.
  • RPO (Recovery Point Objective): This refers to how much data is at risk if a total failure occurs, which is often related to how often the data is backed up.

If you’re unsure that your system is being properly backed up give ICC a call at (970) 821-8592. ICC will work to give you the best defense strategy against a data breach.
