Reasons to plan aheadDisasters come in many forms. Some major disasters include tropical storms that cause flooding, heavy snows and ice that weigh down power lines and roofs, electrical shorts that start fires. However even minor disasters such as virus attacks, disgruntled employees, power surges or brown outs can be a major headache for a business. Planning ahead means that your business is affected for the least amount of time at the minimum cost.
Considerations for creating a disaster recovery plan
Components of a disaster recovery planWhen the strategy is determined for your business many types of solutions must be brought together to carefully cover all the bases. Physical solutions, cover the things you can touch and their power systems. This can also include system design to provide for reconfiguration to restore partial functionality. Software solutions are tools that help automate the process. This also includes record keeping to help assure that preparatory activities have been done. Procedural solutions are the methods that insure that no errors (or omissions) are made while securing your assets. They include educating you and your staff how to avoid disasters and how to recover from them. Procedural solutions also include written step by step instructions to carry out the activities of preparation and recovery. Your plan integrates these aspects together to insure that you can recover after a disaster.
