The Key Elements of a Business Disaster Recovery Plan, Part 1

A disaster recovery plan is critical in preparing large or small businesses to be safe and secure in the event of an elemental disaster. A disaster recovery plan is necessary for any natural or manmade disaster—from hurricanes to earthquakes to fires to power outages. It differs from an incident response plan, which addresses and is created in preparation for security breaches, attacks, or other cybercrimes.

One business’s disaster plan is most likely not the same as another’s. Business needs differ based on types of customers, physical location, type of vertical, etc. Business processes are different because they have different distribution systems. Also, a business headquartered along the Gulf Coast would have to prepare for a hurricane while a business in California has to take potential earthquake damage into account. The key elements of any kind of disaster recovery plan should include all of the following:

  • Communication Plan
  • Role Assignments
  • Plan for Your Equipment
  • Data Continuity System
  • Backup Check
  • Detailed Asset Inventory
  • Images of the Office and Equipment
  • Vendor Communication and
  • Service Restoration Plan
