What is backup and disaster recovery?

Backup and Disaster Recovery involves a set of policies, tools, and procedures that enable the recovery or continuation of vital technology infrastructure and systems following a natural or human-induced disaster.

This step-by-plan is critical to any layered IT security strategy. Businesses need a comprehensive business disaster recovery plan that is regularly tested and verified to ensure business continuity.

What is the difference between backups and a disaster recovery plan?

The difference between a backup and a disaster recovery plan is scope. A backup might include a file, a database, a full system image or any combination of these. While a disaster recovery plan is a detailed strategy across employees and systems that works together to restore business operations after a disaster or data loss event. Backups are a variable of the disaster recovery equation.

A backup, by definition, is the act of copying data into a secondary form (an archive), which can then be used to restore the original data after a disaster event.

Disaster recovery involves a set of detailed procedures, documents, and integrated systems that facilitate backups, testing, monitoring, recovery, and business continuity after a natural or human-induced disaster event.

What ways can a disaster recovery plan be tested?

Disaster recovery preparedness testing is essential to ensure an effective DR strategy. Typically, there are five disaster recovery testing techniques:

Paper test– In a disaster recovery paper test, your disaster recovery team logically reviews the disaster recovery plan in detail by updating and annotating key aspects such as DR policies, procedures, timelines, benchmarks, contact information, and checklists. Redundant copies of your disaster recovery plan should be stored online, in multiple locations, with a hard copy located onsite.

Walk-through test– A walk-through test occurs when a group walks through the DRP to pinpoint any issues that need to be addressed and any modifications that should be made to the disaster recovery environment.

Simulation– During a simulation test, a hypothetical disaster occurs where the IT department tests the non-system related disaster recovery alerts and procedures to ensure that employees understand the measures they need to take during a real disaster recovery scenario.

Parallel test– In a parallel test, failover disaster recovery systems are tested to validate whether they meet RPO and RTO objectives and can support critical operations for business continuity. In this test, primary systems remain online and operate under the entire workload while recoverability is tested on secondary systems (an alternative server, network, or cloud DRaaS solution).

Cutover test – Organizations that want to be 100% confident in their disaster recovery plan will schedule a cutover test that takes primary systems offline while simultaneously bringing secondary disaster recovery systems online that support the full production workload.

What is RTO and RPO in disaster recovery?

There are two key metrics when assessing the effectiveness of a disaster recovery plan, Recovery Point Objective and Recovery Time Objective (RTO).

Recovery Point Objective measures the maximum acceptable amount of data loss, including data that would need to be reentered, following unplanned network downtime. Defined after a disaster recovery risk assessment (RA), the RPO is the maximum age of critical files and data a business can permit in order to resume normal business operations.

The Recovery Time Objective is the intended duration of time and service level across the network that must be restored after a disaster to avoid unacceptable consequences following a disaster.
