Disaster recovery is the process of resuming normal operations following a disaster by regaining access to data, hardware, software, networking equipment, power and connectivity. The goal is to be operational amidst the disaster and return systems to normal as soon as possible. Disasters can include natural events like earthquakes or hurricanes, failure of equipment or infrastructure, such as a power outage or hard disk failure, man-made calamities such as accidental erasure of data or loss of equipment, and cyber attacks by hackers or malicious insiders.
