The 5 Goals Of A BCDR Plan

A business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) plan is a necessary business document for small and medium-sized business. No business is above or out of the range of a cyberattacker. In fact, smaller businesses have been found to be easier targets simply because they don’t have the infrastructure to support an IT department or haven’t contracted with a service manager to ensure the business has a response plan when threatened.

Business continuity is just that. How quickly can your business get back up and running after a threat arises? The threat could be manmade, a weather event, a cyberattack or another threat unique to your industry. Disaster recovery is the method by which you will recover, get back to work and turn your business around from the threat.

A business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) plan is a combination of strategies, policies and procedures about how an organization should respond to or adapt to potential threats or unforeseen disruptive events while minimizing the negative impacts.

The BCDR plan ensures that businesses operate as close to normal as possible after an unexpected interruption, with minimal loss of data. 

The 5 Goals Of A BCDR Plan

Your company’s BCDR plan should account for a variety of scenarios:

  1. Accidental or malicious deletions of data
  2. Hardware failure
  3. Malware attacks
  4. Natural disasters
  5. Weather emergencies
  6. And more  

An effective BCDR plan covers the steps that need to be taken immediately to ensure vital business processes are uninterrupted. The BCDR also addresses ways to quickly restore IT systems and data to resume business after a disruptive event.

When sitting down with one of the IT managed service professionals from WareGeeks Solutions for your BCDR Planning, here are some of the goals.

WareGeeks Solutions’ goal of BCDR planning is to provide data recovery and minimize the effects of a crisis on business operations and enable an organization to get back to normal quickly in the aftermath of a disaster.

Here are the five goals of a WareGeeks Solutions’ BCDR plan for your business: 

  1. Assess the state of business
  2. Find weaknesses and provide solutions 
  3. Review and test the plan 
  4. Identify location for data storage 
  5. Know the disaster recovery teams 

Do you have a BCDR Plan? When is the last time you looked at it, updated it and tested it? This needs to be done regularly as threats change regularly and dramatically.

Hard Love Part One

Jeffery Hill, do you take Pamela House to be your lawfully wedded wife to have and to hold through sickness and in health, for richer or poorer? “I do!” We are standing before our friends and family telling lies. Our lives will never be the same after today. I believe that is one of the biggest lies that Jeffery has ever told in a church. From where I’m standing, I can see the back door. I still have time to make a run for it, or maybe we can just have a big fabulous party shake hands and walk away as mutual friends. Oh well, besides I’m looking fierce in my Michael Kors designer wedding gown that Jeffery paid for. He’s suddenly so…much in Love with Joseph and I that he can’t see straight. I hope no one can see the rather large knife hidden underneath my gown that I brought for just in case. My gun was too large to hide in my bouquet. We have been happy for awhile. So I thought. Until…
