Disaster Recovery is supported by effective planning and its' resulting actions.

Disaster Recovery ? Data Backup and Network Management Alone

You cannot plan for all disasters but you can create a disaster recovery plan to keep the event from impacting your business!

Most equate disaster recovery with data backup when in fact, data recovery is just one facet of disaster recovery. Data backup, data recovery, a secure network solution and an effective Acceptable Use Policy are just the building blocks that will be instrumental in disaster recovery situations.

As you will see below, a business must plan for themselves and others. If your current business disaster recovery plan is non-existent or relies on the "we'll just wait and see" method then now is the time for action.

Don't wait for the disaster to occur before you act. Act now!

What to Include In your Disaster Recovery Plan
  • Planning Phase-includes the creation of a policy statement, a vulnerability statement, and a business impact study.

  • Recovery Standards and Needs Phase-details the recovery process, the time frame needed for recovery, and the resources available.

  • Maintenance and Testing Phase-covers the ongoing maintenance and testing of the disaster recovery plan.

Short and Long Term Outages

Disaster Recovery Plans should cover short and long term events. In a large-scale catastrophe (hurricane, tornado, etc) the possibility of losing all physical business assets is a reality.

Items to consider:
  1. Temporary business relocation.

  2. Purchase or rental of power generation equipment or battery backups.

  3. Rental computer equipment and office equipment.

  4. Telecommunications.

  5. Employee disruptions (death, termination, resignations).

Effect of Off-Site Activities

Disaster Recovery Plans should also consider off-site activities that have an impact on your business model or profitability. If a service provider has a catastrophic event without a proper disaster recovery plan in place then your disaster recovery plan should include steps to recover.

Items to consider:
  1. Web hosting - if your website generates revenue or provides critical information to your clients.

  2. Communications - Wireless phones, short wave radios.

  3. Support Contracts - if you rely on outsourcing.
