Day 26 - Restoring Systems from Backup

You've identified the incident, contained the exposure, eradicated the problem, and now...Welcome to Recovery week!

Every security professional knows that reliable backups of critical systems are vital to the long term succes of your business.  Every organization big or small, should have a backup strategy and should regularly test their backup and recovery process to ensure it will work when it is finally needed.

Today on Day 1 of recovery week we want your tips, tricks and advice on the topic of restoring from backup. If you have any ideas, war stories, or anecdotes, please send them to us via our contact page. Please, be sure to put something in the subject like "Day 26 - " to make it easier for us to sort them. I will update this diary with your comments and thoughts throughout the day.
