Disaster Recovery†

Today, all organizations depend on IT systems. A disaster that affects computer equipment or IT infrastructure can jeopardize an organizationís survival unless it is adequately prepared for such an event!

It is essential to maintain the availability of IT systems in order for operations to run smoothly. An efficient disaster recovery plan that meets your business needs is a key tool, enabling swift reaction to crisis situations.

This plan must make provision for a secondary site where IT systems can be transferred in the event that their current site is no longer functional. Taking the organizationís critical needs into account, this plan must also include all the technical and logistical procedures  that must be followed in order to restore essential IT services as quickly as possible.

To validate the accuracy of these procedures and update them, periodic exercises are required. These exercises not only ensure that the detailed plan guarantees recovery that meets expectations, but they also constitute an element of staff training.
