10 Steps You Should Have in Place to Recover Quickly From a Disaster, Ransomware or Cyber Attack

Disaster Recovery is a term that gives those responsible for IT sleepless nights, and no wonder. Restoring critical systems, applications, and data that have been corrupted or taken hostage in a ransomware attack is typically a complex and onerous task. Yet it’s one that must be accomplished as quickly and thoroughly as possible to minimize the impact of an attack on a business’s operations and to quickly restore normal business operations.

At the receiving end of those sleepless nights are typically the CTO and the CISO. Though there’s sometimes confusion about the responsibilities of the two, on paper at least, the roles are quite distinct. While the CTO takes responsibility for the technical aspects of the recovery process, the CISO will be responsible for managing the security aspects, ideally in close cooperation, of course.

But how do you prepare for the worst? Let’s explore the 10 things you should have in place in the event that the worst really does happen.
