Set your Recovery Objectives
Recovery Time Objective
RTO is the duration of time in which business operations must be restored after a disruption in order to avoid unacceptable consequences associated with a break in business continuity.
Recovery Point Objective
RPO is the maximum tolerable timeframe in which data may be lost due to a disruption in access to critical business services.
Define Your Recovery Process
The recovery process involves several factors, each of which have a direct influence on recovery times.
Factors include the amount of data backed up/to be restored, the location of the data to restore, and the time needed to prepare for the recovery of critical data and applications.
Define Your Recovery Costs
Downtime costs include staff wages, overhead costs and lost revenue due to an inability to continue business operations during a disaster.
