double exposure of businessman crafting disaster recovery plan

Disaster Recovery (DR) is the process of restoring normal operations after an unplanned incident. DR plans should include steps for recovering critical systems, data, and secure access.

The Purpose of DRP

Disaster recovery planning is a critical part of any business continuity plan. Its goal is to help your organization restore normal operations as quickly as possible after an incident. By creating and implementing a disaster recovery plan, you can minimize the disruption caused by an incident and help keep your business running.

The use of information technologies is essential for businesses today. IT systems are used in almost every area of life, from healthcare to commerce and beyond. Therefore, it is crucial to have proper protection and secure operation of information systems. Companies that don’t adopt IT systems will quickly fall behind their competitors. 

Suppose a company doesn’t have the tools to ensure business continuity and resume normal operations in the event of an incident. In that case, it could be at risk for disruptions and financial losses. An incident can not only disrupt business, but it can also prove to be damaging. Even a short outage, even a few hours of downtime, can cause severe damage in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more.

However, careful planning and a recovery plan can prevent business operations from collapsing. In addition, a well-crafted recovery plan ensures that critical systems will be up and running as quickly as possible after an incident, minimizing the business impact.

checking email online business technology on a virtual interface

The most common attacks against business emails are phishing and ransomware. Essentially, a business email compromise (BEC) is when an attacker impersonates the actual owner of the account to steal money or sensitive information from the company.

A (BEC) attack can cause thousands of dollars in damage to a business and take a lot of time and resources to recover.

Cybercriminals are not only trying to get money but also confidential data.

Real-Life Examples of BEC

An example of a BEC attack is an email that appears to come from one of the company’s long-time employees, typically the CEO or CFO, requesting a wire transfer to a specific account. The email is usually well written, sometimes including dates, additional contact information, and contact numbers. In addition, they typically use hacked employee email accounts or email addresses that look similar to official company email.
