is the process an
organization uses to recover access to their software, data, and/or
hardware that are needed to resume the performance of normal,
critical business functions after the event of either a natural
disaster or a disaster caused by humans.
Disaster Recovery Plans are
generally part of a larger, more extensive practice known as
Business Continuity Planning. DR plans should be well practiced so
that the key players are familiar with the specific actions they
will need to take should a disaster occur.
DR plans must also be adaptable
and routinely updated, e.g. if new people, a new branch office, or
new hardware or software are added to an organization they should
promptly be incorporated into the organization's disaster recovery
plan. Companies must consider all these facets of their organization
as well as update and practice their plan if they want to maximize
their recovery after a disaster.
Unfortunately, most small to
medium businesses believe that regular backups constitute a suitable
disaster recovery plan. Let Micro One show your business how to grow
your backup program to a business continuity plan.
