As you work on your recovery strategies, here are some key points you to consider:
Size does not matter.
Smaller companies are actually easier targets and need to be equally wary of an attack.
The inexperienced are the most complacent.
As soon as business leaders and companies deal with an incident that impacts their business, they are more likely to galvanize the troops to prevent one from making a direct hit. But the planning needs to be done before the incident, not after.
Educate employees on their roles.
Some people whether employees or customers are often the weakest link in a recovery chain. Training is critical to an organization’s success and resiliency.
Clear communication is critical.

Plan for the worst.
When preparing your strategy, definitely discard the rose-colored glasses and plan for the worst-case scenario.
