Disaster Recovery is a Security Function | Tomversations: Episode 25

There are a number of technologies in your enterprise that are necessary to keep things working. Whether it’s the network or the storage or the cloud you have infrastructure that is necessary to ensure your employees and customers can get things done. What about backup and disaster recovery? Is this a necessary technology for your line of business to operate? Or is it a solution that is designed to keep something from happening, much like security?

In this episode of Tomversations, we look at disaster recovery and how it has been rebranded in the wake of a massive outbreak of cybercrime. Is data protection the key to keeping you from being infected by ransomware? And if so, who should be the team that is managing that infrastructure? Is it the server team? The storage team? Or should it belong to the security team?
