Disaster Types and Ways to Recover
The “Disaster” phenomenon is as ancient as the planet Earth. Disasters came into existence long before organic life originated. Tornadoes and hurricanes, earthquakes and landslides, floods and wildfires — some of them are brief, but extremely violent, some are long-lasting and span widely across geographical locations. Many of them are still completely unpredictable. However, disasters can also be caused by humans. In the IT industry, a disaster can also be caused by a cyber-attack, power outage, burst water pipe or theft. By definition, whenever a disaster occurs, it causes significant damage to your infrastructure, which leads to downtime, disruption and, in the worst case, loss of business.
