Reliance on information technology can be risky. Attempts to steal, expose or modify data are a constant reality. Hacks to infect applications or make them unavailable frequently occur. Enterprises not fully prepared to face the challenges of a disaster risk severe losses, including automation and active engagement.
What is a Disaster?
A disaster is any event that disrupts the ability to provide services. This event can be natural or manmade. For example, a ransomware attack would be an event that renders most of an enterpriseâ€™s data unavailable to customers and staff. Similarly, an earthquake that destroys an important enterprise facility would also disrupt services, and, therefore, could also be termed a disaster.
