Disaster Recovery Plan

Written by  on August 25, 2016

[The] disaster recovery plan should include everything required to get your PKI environment back up and operational, including (1) how and where backup files are stored, (2) how backups can be retrieved, (3) what hardware is needed to access them, (4) where to get the hardware if if the primary systems are destroyed, and (5) where your operating system software and application software is stored and how to reinstall all of the pieces.

Zitat des Tages

What both disaster recovery and business continuity have in common is the need for testing and verification that the testing actually accomplishes the goals of DR or BC. A regular test plan must be performed and evaluated for both DR and BC. Without regular testing, you will never know that the data you thought were backed up can actually be restored or that your failover data center will come online when a disaster strikes. If you do not test your DR and BC plans, your PKI organization will fail when it is needed most. Backups can and do fail occasionally. If you do not test restoring your backups, you will never know if the data will be available in a crisis situation.
