- Even if you have done everything possible to protect the organizational information processing assets, that fact is you may find yourself having to recover from a system compromised or system failure. Regardless of the cause, the goal is to have the system returned to operational status as soon as possible. The best way is to be prepared by having a disaster planning and recovery process in place.
Disaster recovery is the process of rebuilding a system to a known working state after an event. An event can be anything from an external system compromise, to an internal user error or a system hardware/software failure.

- Hardware Failure
- Software Failure
- System Compromise
- Infrastructure Failure
- Catastrophic Events
