Recovery Time Objective and Recovery Point Objective

  1. 1. RTO & RPO
  2. 2. Introduction
  3. 3. Business Continuity Planning (BCP)
  4. 4. Business continuity planning involves: → defining potential risks → determining how those risks will affect operations → implementing safeguards and procedures designed to mitigate those risks → testing those procedures to ensure that they work → periodically reviewing the process to make sure that it is up to date.
  5. 5. How do we do this?
  6. 6. RTO & RPO
  7. 7. Basically, how much data and time you can afford to lose.
  8. 8. Recovery Time Objective
  9. 9. → target time you set for the recovery of your IT and business activities after a disaster has struck → calculate how quickly you need to recover → dictates the type or preparations you need to implement and the overall budget you should assign to business continuity
  10. 10. Recovery Point Objective
  11. 11. → focused on data and your company’s loss tolerance in relation to your data → determined by looking at the time between data backups and the amount of data that could be lost in between backups
  12. 12. Differences?
  13. 13. Two parts of the same coin
  14. 14. → RTO is usually large scale, and looks at your whole business and systems involved → RPO focuses just on data and your company’s overall resilience to the loss of it. → RTO deals with downtime, RPO with data loss.
  15. 15. Why do we do this?
  16. 16. → How many employees will be affected if the critical system failed? → How much revenue would be lost as result of system failure?
  17. 17. What you should remember
  18. 18. → Every data may not be critical for the business. → Plan RTO and RPO for Business Critical Systems. → Different systems have different RPO.
