This can cause significant losses if there is no backup strategy to solve it quickly. Do you know how to protect your information and give continuity to your processes? If the answer is yes, you already know that all it takes is some help of technology and a DRP (Disaster Recovery Plan). What is a DRP? A DRP, (disaster recovery plan) is a plan carried out through a structured strategy with measures and actions that guarantees the security and restoration of technology and information services of the companies after having suffered an eventuality that affects their operations. The goal is to minimize the impact and downtime that a disaster can cause, allowing you to get back to business quickly and efficiently. How to create a DPR?

Designate a team dedicated to planning and implementing the Disaster Prevention Plan, DPR. It is important that all departments of the companies are involved. Step 2: Evaluate the risks. Understanding what the potential risks would be will help your business develop relevant recovery strategies. Ask yourself, what are the eventualities that could affect my business quality?

Step 4: Analyze the impact. A risk assessment must be carried out, based on a Business Impact Analysis (BIA), based on which you can make decisions and implement effective recovery strategies and implementation of data backup policies. Step 5: Describe the plan. Prepare a descriptive document on the strategies to be implemented before, during and after suffering an eventuality. This plan must follow a communication protocol, defined security measures and recovery procedures for systems and applications.
