Course 2: Disaster Recovery - Hoping for the Best but Planning for the Worst


Aired May 19, 2021
Presented by: Kevin Ricci, Partner

Since a disaster is more a matter of “when” and not “if,” it’s critical to have a plan in place to ensure a rapid recovery. Whether it’s a natural cataclysm or a human-made catastrophe, having actionable, tested steps in place to recover could mean the difference between a brief outage and weeks of downtime.

In this session, we covered disaster recovery planning. Key takeaways included:

  • Knowing the key components to include in a plan
  • Understanding Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO)
  • Differentiating between disaster recovery, business continuity, and incident response plans
