Information assurance is a way to implement cyber resilience. It protects your organisation from threats – inside and out.
Current focus in the IT world is on information security but information assurance is a term that encompasses not only security but resilience – the ability of your organisation to withstand not only attacks but faults. The ability to be able to recover from an incident, be a deliberate attack or accidental system failure, is fundamental to many security frameworks such as ISO27K .
Disaster recovery procedures are required when there has been either a catastrophic system failure or natural disaster such as earthquake or flood. It is most likely that an organisation would have to work temporarily at another physical location and or use backup data stored at another cloud location when such an event occurs.
BCP planning covers all situations from the printer running out of paper to a cyber attack.
Regulations such as the GDPR and frameworks such as NIST demand that organisations have in place DR and BCP procedures.
