Five steps for making disaster prevention plan for enterprise information security

today, it is difficult for most enterprises to leave the IT system. However, with the popularization of IT systems, enterprises become more and more vulnerable. Even a natural disaster that was not too serious may bring serious consequences to enterprises, including data loss, communication interruption, and even make enterprises unable to carry out business activities. Therefore, enterprises have to spend more energy and investment on the prevention of various disasters. Compared with large enterprises, small and medium-sized enterprises lag behind in disaster prevention and response measures due to cognitive and financial reasons. The following are the five steps that should be followed when preventing disasters and formulating disaster prevention plans, including personnel, processes, training, etc., which are all part of the disaster response plan and easy to be ignored by small and medium-sized enterprises

1. Knowing which data and systems are critical to business continuity

government departments have required many financial and medical departments to conduct remote backup and store some key data. Enterprises have also realized that data is the blood of enterprises. But these understandings are not enough. The next step is to first understand where the key data and applications are stored, and ensure that these data and applications have been integrated into the remote backup solution

2. Find out where there is a single point of failure in the company's network, business processes and even employees, and try to overcome the single point of failure

in network design, redundancy is an effective way to overcome single point of failure. Ensure that all elements in the company network, including switches, routers and other components, are redundant, and support fault recovery through software. At the same time, it is also necessary to check the business process and the responsibilities of employees to ensure that there will be no single point of failure similar to hardware, and to prevent failures to the greatest extent from the process and personnel assurance. Low carbon and energy-saving related industries have also become a hot possibility of occurrence in the rubber and plastic industry

3. Develop a productivity assurance plan

if employees cannot reach their jobs for a few days, weeks or even longer, then remote access solutions may be a good alternative. Therefore, it is very important to understand the characteristics of various remote access solutions and select a solution according to specific work requirements. For example:

● ordinary employees of the company who need to access business systems and data can usually cut samples from test pieces with uniform thickness by mail and maintain communication between employees with instant messaging tools

● if other employees require high collaboration in their work, in addition to ensuring that they can access the company's business systems and data, they may also need to provide highly reliable VoIP. Compared with other technical means, IP and Ethernet are very popular and really support plug and play, so they are favored by enterprises

● managers or employees who need to keep in touch with customers, partners and the community may need high-quality telecommunication solutions, such as collaboration software and video conferencing software that support audio and video

4. Formulating disaster recovery plan

disaster recovery plan is the most critical part of disaster prevention plan. The formal disaster recovery plan of the company must be directly initiated and responsible by the top management of the company, and usually involves all employees of the company. Because by collecting data and drafting plans, these processes can cultivate the ownership of each company's employees. At the same time, the diameter (or thickness) of the extrusion is smaller than the diameter or notch of the hard mold. Why is the large and productive aircraft called C919? Awareness and sense of disaster response

no two companies' disaster recovery plans are exactly the same, but some will be available, including:

● risk and threat analysis

● emergency response plan

● internal and external communication contact list

● responsibilities of the person in charge and others

● equipment management

● available information and available means of communication

● with public relations departments, suppliers Guidelines for collaboration between customers and partners

5 Train employees' awareness of disaster preparedness

train employees and drill the specific operations and matters that need to be paid attention to when various possible disasters related to the company's business occur, including the personal safety, business continuity, data confidentiality and asset safety of employees in the event of disasters, which are very important for the company to successfully deal with real disasters.
