76% of businesses experienced at least one ransomware attack in the past year.
Current trends show that it is not a question of whether your organization will fall victim to an attack, but when.
This may seem like a conversation your internal managers may have to start because it’s not a quick thing until an attack happens,
but having a successful disaster recovery plan is the only way to minimize the risk that your organization will face in the event of a ransomware attack.
Today read about 3 keys to establishing a business continuity and disaster recovery plan.
Manage your organization using business impact analysis
Recovering from data loss, ransomware, or any attack, in general, is not always possible if transactions are not supported.
Being prepared for the inevitable can save your business not only from losing valuable data, but also from capital losses caused by interruptions that the organization may experience.
A business impact analysis allows you to go through and analyze your processes, workflows, tools and other things that are necessary to run your business. In this analysis, your organization can determine, for example:
- How does the exit affect the company name or brand?
- If your organization doesn’t serve your customers or employees, what about money?
- Clients and employees unsure if their employer can maintain a reliable workplace?

Maintain best practices in software and hardware and test your backup systems
Another key to establishing a successful disaster recovery plan is to ensure that your organization is aligned with enterprise hardware and software best practices.
You may be wondering, what does this mean and what are these best practices?
- Make sure your version is locked
- Restart your server
- Make sure you are licensed for your server and hardware upgrade
Additionally, it is important to test your backups when you have them.

Your organization can test this issue by actually starting a DR event and ensuring that all applications are tested from the server level.
