Disaster Recovery (DR) Do you have a plan in place?

Posted by Peter Heinicke on Mon, Oct 29, 2012 @ 03:28 PM

All companies need to be prepared for emergencies; however, there are an astounding percentage that are not. If some sort of catastrophic event were to happen, would your company be ready? Do you have a disaster recovery plan in place that will get you through? Keep in mind that the term 'Disaster' applies to many different types of events, not only encompassing events brought by mother nature, but also accidental, or deliberate human influence such as fire, flood, a loss of communication or even a virus.  In order to ensure total preparedness, there are two important key plans you should consider. The first is a Business Continuity Plan (BCP), and the second a Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP). While the two have many things in common, the main differentiator is that a DRP focuses on recovery whereas a BCP allows for continued business until recovery is accomplished.
 
There are several steps to take in order to build your BCP and DRP plans and we've included some tips below on how to get started. Your peace of mind and the future of your company is of the utmost importance and we hope you find this information helpful.
