As federal agencies and programs embrace an advanced cloud strategy, the need to establish a sound and tested disaster recovery plan is becoming even more crucial to mission success. Disaster recovery plans ensure data availability, business continuity, and reputational trust when a system interruption occurs. Nobody can predict exactly when a worst-case scenario will strike. A natural disaster, a compromised datacenter, or a system failure can come when you least expect it. That’s why a disaster recovery plan is a smart investment for savvy IT managers.
