Trade secrets, personal information and other sensitive data are all things that are at risk in the event of a data breach. With the stakes so high, it is important that your company is prepared with a disaster recovery plan. But what should be included in such a plan? How can one best be prepared for a potential data breach? Let’s take a look and how to create a strong disaster recovery plan.
A Strong Team
The first thing you need to consider is the strength of your team. How well are your people trained for disaster recovery? It is vital to have a plan in place and properly equip your team in regards to such things as communication with your clients, legal consultation, and a course of action to set things right.
A Plan of Action
It is also important that you have a plan of action in place in the event of a data breach. This includes considerations such as identifying the problem and coming up with a solution as well as getting a perimeter in place to secure any equipment that has been compromised.
Revisit Your Plan
Lastly, it is a good idea to revisit your plan regularly to check it for any needed updates. This will ensure that your plan is strong and that no detail has been overlooked. Sometimes a data breach is something that is unavoidable but having a strong plan in place is key to survival and will be vital in regaining control of your company.
