Every part of your business relies, in some way, on information. Your files are stored on a server. Your employees email each other to share data, and you use an electronic calendar to sort out everyone’s schedules. But what happens when you can’t access it?
If you don’t have a ready answer, it’s time to develop one. If you’re scrambling around trying to figure out what to do during an emergency, it’s already too late. Instead, you should be proactive about creating a plan in the event of disaster.
Your disaster recovery plan, or DRP, should lay out firm priorities and recovery times for valuable IT infrastructure. You should have a clear idea of the relative importance of all hardware, software and applications, and what to do in the event they’re inaccessible.
