Disaster Recovery Plan checklist
Every organisation should address the issue of Disaster Recovery to a greater or lesser degree.
After all, this is an essential aspect of Business Continuity. Disaster Recovery (DR) covers the fastest possible recovery of the IT environment following a disaster or disruption, for example the recovery of critical applications and regaining access to critical data – everything that is required in relation to IT to get your business up and running again after a disruption. Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity are terms that sometimes get mixed up.
Business Continuity covers the fastest possible continuation of all critical business processes following a disaster, part of which is IT. An organisation should therefore focus on all aspects of Business Continuity Management (BCM); IT, telephony, workstations and an up-to-date Business Continuity Plan (BCP).
Because the IT environment is an essential part of almost all companies, the availability of a Disaster Recovery Plan is a necessity and you can arrange for such a plan to be prepared by your own IT staff. A Disaster Recovery Plan Checklist can be helpful for that.
