No, it needn't be difficult. Much of a disaster recovery planning initiative is common sense. The rest is greatly simplified through simple to use proven tools and templates.   This Disaster Recovery Planning Template was use by consultants who created the Disaster Recovery Plan and Business Resumption plan that Merrill Lynch used after 9/11.

This site is designed to catalog the easiest yet most effective approaches and products... to make disaster recovery planning less of a trauma and more of a business process.

The creation of the plan itself is the first port of call, but we also examine contingency audit and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance from a management perspective.

 

Disaster Recovery Plan

Disaster Recovery Audit

Risk analysis is inextricably linked with disaster recovery. Assessment of the risks which may lead to disaster is essential in the determination of what controls are appropriate to the situation. Again, however, risk analysis is often made more difficult than necessary.

Do you really need a complicated piece of software to create your plan? Do you need 20 years experience in business continuity planning? Do you need to divert untold resources into the plan creation exercise? Certainly, if you employ the Disaster Recovery Planning Template the answer is... NO!

 


How do you ensure that your disaster recovery plan meets your actual needs? How do you know that it will all work? Do you audit it, and if so, how?

Equally fundamentally, do you know what your resource/service dependencies are and what their time criticalities are? What of your actual everyday contingency practices - do they measure up?

To determine and ensure all of this with minimum fuss, a comprehensive but extremely simple to use product is now available.... the Disaster Recovery Toolkit - Business and IT Impact Analysis

Ransomware is more common than you think

RansomewareRansomeware has grown in occurrence and sophistication in recent months. One of the best known forms, called CryptoWall, just had Version 4 released.  It has a greatly improved ability to hide from antivirus software and firewalls. It is estimated that the  distributors of CryptoWall made more than $25 million in 2015. There have been recent indications that the bad actors are concerned about maintaining the belief that paying the ransom will really allow for file recovery. As such, in some instances, they have been found on PC help forums, assisting victims with file recovery and payment issues. How big of them!

Ransomeware typically ignores local drives but attacks server drives.  It will encrypt the data files and accounting databases on the server.

Malwarebytes is a great tool you can use to eradicate the actual infection from any PCs. Once that is done you can began to plan for file recovery.
