Your Maturity Index

Disaster Recovery and Backup Maturity Assessment: Evaluate Your Company's Resilience

Safeguarding critical systems and data is today on everyone’s agenda. Disruptions can happen at any moment, making it crucial for your businesses to have a robust disaster recovery and backup strategy in place.

Our comprehensive assessment tool empowers businesses to understand their current state of readiness,
identify vulnerabilities, and take proactive measures to ensure uninterrupted operations.

What is it for?

Disaster Recovery and Backup Maturity Assessment

Our tool provides a systematic approach to evaluating your organization’s disaster recovery and backup preparedness. By answering a series of targeted questions, you’ll delve into key aspects of your disaster recovery strategy, including Business Impact Analysis, Disaster Recovery Plan, Backup and Recovery processes, as well as Monitoring and Maintenance protocols. 

How it works?

Easy 4 steps

  1. Business Impact Analysis (Questions 1-4): Assess your organization’s understanding of critical systems, the impact of disasters on operations, and the effectiveness of your prioritization plan.

  2. Disaster Recovery Plan (Questions 5-8): Evaluate the existence, testing, and coverage of your disaster recovery plan, ensuring it encompasses all vital systems and data. 

  3. Backup and Recovery (Questions 9-12): Scrutinize your backup processes, storage security, and recovery protocols to guarantee data integrity and accessibility in times of need.

  4. Monitoring and Maintenance (Questions 13-16): Explore your system health monitoring and issue resolution procedures, ensuring your infrastructure is consistently robust and resilient. 

 Upon completing the assessment, our calculator will analyze your responses and assign a readiness level to each category. These levels, ranging from Inadequate to Exceptional, provide a clear picture of your organization’s disaster recovery and backup posture. 

Understanding your Disaster Recovery and Backup Readiness Index is vital. It enables you to grasp the strengths and weaknesses of your current strategy, empowering you to make informed decisions. By identifying areas for improvement, you can enhance your organization’s preparedness, minimize downtime, and ensure business continuity even in the face of unforeseen challenges. 

 Take the first step towards securing your business today. Conduct a thorough assessment using our tool and embark on the journey towards a resilient, disaster-ready future. Remember, being prepared today ensures a thriving tomorrow. 

Company name
Has the organization conducted a business impact analysis to identify critical systems and data?

Does the organization have a clear understanding of the impact of a disaster or data loss on business operations?

Is there a process in place for updating the business impact analysis as business needs change?

Is there a clear plan for prioritizing systems and data for recovery?

Does the organization have a disaster recovery plan in place?

Has the plan been tested and updated regularly?

Does the plan address all critical systems and data identified in the business impact analysis?

Is there a clear process for activating the disaster recovery plan in the event of a disaster or system failure?

Is there a process in place for regularly backing up all critical data?

Are backups stored securely and offsite?  

Is there a process in place for testing and verifying backups?

Is there a process in place for recovering data from backups in the event of data loss or corruption?

Is there a process in place for monitoring system health and performance?

Are there procedures in place for identifying and addressing system issues before they become critical?

Are systems and data regularly tested for recoverability?

Is there a process in place for regularly reviewing and updating disaster recovery and backup processes?

Once the above questions have been answered, a disaster recovery and backup readiness index can be calculated based on the following scale: 

  • Level 1: Inadequate – The organization has significant gaps in its disaster recovery and backup posture.  
  • Level 2: Developing – The organization has some disaster recovery and backup processes in place, but significant improvements are needed.  
  • Level 3: Mature – The organization has a mature disaster recovery and backup posture, but there is room for improvement.  
  • Level 4: Robust – The organization has a strong disaster recovery and backup posture and is well-prepared to address potential disruptions.  
  • Level 5: Exceptional – The organization has a comprehensive and mature approach to disaster recovery and backup. 

The disaster recovery and backup readiness index can be calculated by assigning a score of 1-5 to each question based on the level of readiness demonstrated. The scores are then averaged across all questions in each category to determine the readiness level for that category. The overall disaster recovery and backup readiness index is calculated by averaging the readiness levels across all categories. 

Level 1: Basic
You have minimal cybersecurity processes in place and face a high risk of cyberattacks. Immediate attention and significant improvements are necessary to enhance your security posture.

Level 2: Developing
You have some cybersecurity processes in place but require substantial improvements to reach a mature state. You should focus on strengthening your policies, procedures, and security controls.

Level 3: Mature
You have a solid cybersecurity posture, but there is still room for improvement. You should continue enhancing your processes, monitoring capabilities, and incident response practices.

Level 4: Advanced
You have a strong cybersecurity posture and are well-prepared to address potential threats. However, you should remain proactive and stay abreast of emerging threats and technologies to maintain your advanced level of security.

Level 5: Leading
You have a comprehensive and mature approach to cybersecurity. You are a leader in cybersecurity best practices and continually innovate to stay ahead of evolving threats.
