The Proact 7 step approach to Operational Resilience

Our simple seven-step approach will help your organisation reach compliance, correctly and efficiently respond to a cyber attacks.


Assess the risks and vulnerabilities to your organisation's data and systems, identify critical assets and data, and determine the recovery objectives and strategies.


Establish a robust backup strategy that includes regular, secure backups of critical data, systems, and applications, both on-site and offline.

Detect & Notify

The organisation should have a mechanism to detect any cyber-attack or data breach, and a notification process that involves alerting all necessary stakeholders, including IT and security teams, management and customers.

Contain & Recover

Once the attack has been detected, it is crucial to contain the damage and prevent it from spreading further. This may involve isolating the affected systems, shutting down critical applications and starting the recovery process.


After the attack has been contained, an investigation should be conducted to determine the cause, scope, and impact of the attack. This will help to identify any additional risks, vulnerabilities, or gaps in the organisation's security and recovery plans.


The organisation should then implement remediation measures to address any identified weaknesses or gaps, such as implementing new security measures, patching vulnerabilities, or improving staff training and awareness.


The final step is to restore critical systems and data from the backup and ensure that they are secure and functional. This may involve testing and validating the backup data and systems, as well as conducting additional security testing to ensure that the organisation is fully protected.

Maximise backup efficiency by leveraging hybrid cloud

We offer a range of backup solutions and services for your business requirements. So whether you prefer to have your backup in your data centres, in any of our data centres or in the public cloud, we can meet your needs.

A hybrid cloud approach allows you to utilise the best of all worlds by combining the benefits of on-premises backup with the advantages of cloud-based backup. With a hybrid cloud backup solution, you can choose which data to back up and where to store it — allowing your organisation to achieve improved redundancy and flexibility whilst optimising costs and meeting regulatory requirements. Having backups in multiple locations can also ensure data is protected in the event of a disaster or outage, and at the same time provides geographic redundancy.
