Disaster recovery planning – Making sure your company is ready for anything
Abstract: Every year there are at least a few examples in the news of how a single natural disaster can adversely affect — sometimes even destroy — a business. And many disasters, both natural and manmade, have detrimental consequences not fully realized until many months later. This is why it’s so important that a company put together a comprehensive plan to keep its people safe, its information preserved and its operational capacity maintained. This article shows how disaster planning, storage technology and the proper insurance are important components in a disaster recovery plan. A sidebar briefly looks at the kinds of disasters waiting to happen.
