Disaster recovery is a complex and multifaceted operation, and your DR team members are likely already spreading themselves thin trying to ensure a speedy and complete recovery. That’s why it’s important to ensure that system and data security is always maintained, especially during a DR operation.
The best way to maintain a secure disaster recovery process is to have good security practices already baked into existing technologies and processes, recommended Ned Bellavance, director of cloud solutions at IT service management company Anexinet. “The data and applications running in your DR location should be following the same guidance and security protocols as your production facilities,” he said.
