Disaster recovery in the cloud – is it necessary?

Mark Bentkower, CISSP, Director of Systems Engineering, ASEAN, Commvault | March 11, 2016
Mark Bentkower of Commvault discusses how organisations can find cohesion between building a comprehensive DR plan in the Cloud, whilst ensuring data security.

4.    Address the security risks 

Security is central to any DR plan. Risks stemming from the cloud are not much more different from other Internet-related risks. As such, consider implementing the same security and compliance practices and tools currently in place for the Internet on the cloud. Finally, work with your cloud provider to identify and create the required level of cloud security.

DR in the cloud is for everyone

Cloud technology is easily accessible. Essentially, any firm of any size can easily tap into backup and disaster recovery services from a cloud DR provider. Definitely, there are risks, and contingencies need to be accounted for when creating a DR plan, whether it's in the cloud or on tape. Cloud's agility and accessibility makes its inclusion in a robust DR plan a no-brainer. Before it's too late, trust the cloud and make sure your DR plan is comprehensive enough to include it as an element. It just makes good business sense.
