You may think you know all about disaster recovery plans (DRP) from attending conferences or reading up on the subject. But one of the best ways to learn is by example, and the following real-life case offers valuable lessons. Learn about the DPR audit of a state government office and the knowledge gained from it.
Failing to stop a cyber attacker, or to pass a disaster recovery plan (DRP) audit could be the product of focusing your efforts on the wrong educational resources. Because no matter how many conferences you attend, or how many certifications you receive, nothing beats real-world case studies.

Companies are always under pressure to cut costs while “big data” is still a responsibility that businesses upkeep. While servers, storage facilities, and data centers are all flexible and many vendors do offer redundancy, the possibility of losing data – and hence the risk – is inevitable.
