Disaster Recovery

Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Earthquakes. Fires. Floods. Terrorist attacks. Cyberattacks. Simple Power Outages. You know any of these could happen to your business at any time. And you’ve probably got a Disaster Recovery plan in place to protect your enterprise’s data, employees and business.

But how thorough is your Disaster Recovery plan? When was it last updated and tested? Have you considered new technologies and services that can make it easier to recover from disaster?  Listed below are 8 things to consider when creating or modifying your Disaster Recovery plan.

Inventory hardware and software
Define your tolerance for downtime and data loss
Lay out who is responsible for what – and identify backup personnel
Create a communication plan
Let employees know where to go in case of emergency – and have a backup worksite
Make sure your service-level agreements (SLAs) include disasters/emergencies
Include how to handle sensitive information
Test your plan regularly

Business Continuity

Business Continuity are the only two words that really matter to the business owner.  How fast can I be back operating if something happens?  A Disaster Recovery plan will tell you this.  It will identify the gap between where you are and where you want to be.
