Creation of Disaster Recovery / IT Continuity Plan

Thursday, January 1, 2004


We began our disaster recovery planning processes after experiencing several disasters, including a building fire, an environmental contamination, faulty discharge of a fire suppression system, and several severe electrical outages. This practice is a process that we use to evaluate risk and plan for recovery from disaster. It is an ongoing process, not a destination. It is impossible to document everything needed for every disaster recovery. We need to plan on including thinking, reasonable people, and key backup people, who can calmly work through a situation. Each and every situation is different.
