Forming a DR/BC plan for the inevitable data breach

Sponsored by SearchCIO.com

According to one statistic, as of July 2015 there were, in total, almost 4 million applications available on the app stores of Amazon, Apple, BlackBerry, Google and Windows. This figure is only one reflection of how the technologies that enable our digital selves -- like mobile computing, cloud and social media -- have not only transformed the way we work, but also how we live. In light of the fact that we also now live in an increasingly cyberthreat-filled landscape, having a comprehensive DR/BC plan is no longer optional for enterprises, says SearchCIO columnist and former CIO Harvey Koeppel.

In this SearchCIO handbook, Koeppel offers a list of DR principles CIOs can follow to help them design and implement a solid DR/BC plan that will protect both business and personal data when the next disaster strikes. In our second piece, CTO Niel Nickolaisen shares advice on how to get the most value out of DR testing -- without risking damage to your organization. In our last article, writer Mary K. Pratt gathers tips from DR experts on how to craft a DR/BC plan that can tackle any type of disaster, including data breaches.
