Backup and Disaster Recovery in Georgia

Nothing can be more costly to a business in Georgia than to lose all of their data in a cyber-attack or disaster. A simple hardware failure with incorrect backup plan can cost your business untold amounts of money. Entrust Kaptechs to make sure your data is backed up and accessible in the even of a disaster.

What are the key components to a backup and disaster recovery plan?

A comprehensive backup and disaster recovery plan includes the following key components:

  1. Data Backup: Regularly scheduled backups of critical data to secure locations, both on-site and off-site, ensuring data can be restored in case of loss.
  2. Disaster Recovery Strategy: A detailed plan outlining the steps to recover IT systems, applications, and data, including a priority list of what needs to be restored first and the resources required.
  3. Regular Testing and Updates: Routine testing of the backup and disaster recovery plan to ensure its effectiveness and updating it regularly to reflect changes in the IT environment and business needs.

How does Kaptechs ensure my data is protected?

Kaptechs follows the 3-2-1 backup solution while also providing for regular testing of your critical systems to provide peace of mind knowing your data can be restored in the event of a disatance

  • (3-2-1) 3 different backups in 2 different locations, 1 of which must be office
  • Encrypted backups to ensure integrity of data in transport
  • Routine tests to ensure critical systems are actually being backuped
  • Cloud backups of 365 data if required

If you already have a data backup solution, here are a few things you should verify:

  1. Are your backups being done frequently enough? If backups are not performed regularly, significant amounts of data can be lost between backups, leading to incomplete data recovery and potential business disruptions.
  2. Are your backups encrypted? Insufficient security measures, such as lack of encryption or weak access controls, can expose backup data to cyber threats like hacking or ransomware, compromising data integrity and confidentiality.
  3. Are you testing your restore process routinely? Without regular testing of backup restorations (at least monthly), there is a risk that the backup data may be corrupted, incomplete, or incompatible, rendering it useless in a disaster recovery scenario.
