Cyber-Recovery: Why DR Is Not Enough for Data Trust
This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation explains why disaster recovery (DR) efforts fail in cyber-recovery (CR) scenarios, offers a taxonomy of capabilities that organizations should have for both data protection and data security and considerations concerning whether an organization should use DIY cyber-recovery or engage a cyber-recovery as a service (CRaaS) provider. Ransomware may be the biggest threat to data trust today. IDC research shows nearly half of organizations have suffered a ransomware attack in the past three years and that fewer than a third of those were able to fully recover data without paying a ransom. The problem, in many cases, may be that IT teams try to use disaster recovery systems for CR. DR processes alone do not include critical capabilities CR.
