As mentioned in “The Key Elements of a Business Disaster Recovery Plan, Part 1,” the same plan does not fit every business. However, every company should evaluate its critical business systems, to determine which of those systems should take priority over the others during the recovery process. Also, we can’t stress too much the need for a list of employees and service providers who are necessary to expedite the recovery process. Create a checklist of required tasks for each person that is part of the recovery scenario. The roles and responsibilities of everyone involved in the organization should be established in the event of a disaster.
It’s always a good idea to have an offsite storage location for your back-up servers, hardware, and other materials that are vital in the disaster recovery process. Locate your storage site in the safest possible area that is far enough away from your main office, so it is not impacted by the disaster.
In the event of a disaster, efficiency and speed are critical to minimizing the damage. If you have an
organized and clearly constructed disaster recovery plan, you are more likely to be able to minimize the damage, and also better able to get up and running again after a disaster strikes.
