So, how does KP Snacks and, indeed, the victim of any cyber attack, bounce back from such a critical incident? At Neuways, we encourage our customers to have comprehensive Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) plans in place. BCDR plans are there to help ease the pain of the recovery process. A plan which saves the data of an organisation in several different locations means that the ransom demands of a cyber crime gang do not need to be met, in order for the retrieval of business data.
In some instances, data can be reinstated within a matter of minutes, reducing the downtime experienced and allowing for normal business operations to be carried out. BCDR plans cover events such as cyber attacks, but also a natural event, like an office being flooded, criminal damage, such as theft or arson, as well as providing safe and secure access to saved, confidential information.
