DISASTER RECOVERY and BUSINESS CONTINUITY
Planning, review, and testing of potential business disruption items/events.
Sentry Technology Solutions' Goal
Business disasters can put your business' operations at risk. They can be caused by a cyber attack, equipment failures, and/or natural disasters such as a hurricane.
Our goal is to have your business operations continue as close to normal as possible. Example: during one of Florida's recent hurricanes, our client's disaster recovery plan called for the transfer of phones to their Texas office, allow employees to access servers remotely, and send extra backups to Atlanta.

Two Important Considerations
Recovery Time Objective (RTO) - targeted duration of time and a service level within which a business process must be restored after a disaster (or disruption) in order to avoid unacceptable consequences associated with a break in business continuity.
Recovery Point Objective (RPO) - for business continuity planning. It is the maximum targeted period in which data might be lost from an IT service due to a major incident. The RPO gives limit to plan for.
The Sentry Technology Solutions' Integrated Approach
Detailed Analysis and Review of Threats
This includes identifying both the potential threats and possible recovery plan(s) for each.
Develop a Business Operations Impact Evaluation
This determines priorities and dependencies within IT systems and Procedures.
Consider the Human Equation
Our approach also addresses the people involved - organizational and users
Refresh the Plan
Plans should be updated as new technologies, configurations, staff, and users are added.
Identify what is most important and sequence actions to be taken.
Plans are not just designed and promulgated, they need to be tested and rehearsed on a regular basis
Data Backup Services
An effective recovery approach is the migration into the cloud. Sentry tests and validates recovery of data and related workflows.
