Rethinking the Cost of Data Recovery

Recovery is an important and emerging category of incident response, which has seen a major increase in expenses due to complex infrastructure setups and the business impact resulting from shifts in threat actor tactics, techniques, and motives. An intelligence-led recovery approach enables action that can eradicate threats rapidly and can lower the ultimate time and cost of recovery by reducing the scope of the entire recovery effort while keeping as much of the operation online.

Data Recovery: Not As Easy As It Might Seem
