Backups Aren’t Disaster Recovery: Effective DR Planning for Your Organization

This is a resubmission of an accepted 20NTC session proposal.

Description

While having backups is important, backups are not a disaster recovery strategy. A backup is a copy of your data. A DR plan will help you prepare for, respond to, and recover from unplanned downtime, and return your operations to normalcy.  Unfortunately, many people make the mistake of not knowing the difference and their organizations end up paying the price when a network goes down or a disaster occurs. This session will discuss the differences between data backups and DR and will provide information on how to create an effective DR plan for your organization.
