Thanks for Recovering... Now I can Hack You!

Why do disaster recovery (DR) exercises fail? Is it a lack of planning or a lack of testing? Both of these would cause an exercise to fail, but is this really a failure? If a DR team member learns something from the exercise, or if the documentation is updated with new knowledge, then it could be debated that the exercise was a success. However, if the data is restored successfully, the exercise has an even greater chance at being an epic failure. Attend this session to learn more about the risks involved with data recovery exercises.
