Devising an IT Disaster Recovery Plan
When some people see the term IT disaster recovery, they think backups. However, having backups is only one part of IT disaster recovery.
An effective IT disaster recovery plan will provide you with a roadmap to get essential systems running again quickly after a disaster. Your plan should incorporate recovery strategies for hardware, software, data, and connectivity. For each component, we can help you determine what has to be done to prepare for a disaster as well as what actions must take place if a calamity occurs.
For example, consider the software your company uses. A reliable plan will make sure that you can easily access copies of your operating system software and business-critical applications so that they can be quickly reinstalled after a disaster. Standardizing the operating system software and applications can make software recovery easier. To ensure that the software restoration goes smoothly after a disaster, part of the plan will specify who is responsible for carrying out this task and the order in which the software should be restored (most critical software first).
If you have a business continuity plan, we will help you make sure the IT disaster recovery plan can meet the recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO) defined in the continuity plan.
We can also help you test the IT disaster recovery plan periodically, just like a fire drill, to make sure it works as designed. Our technical team has the business experience to evaluate each component of the plan so that your company is prepared and minimizes downtime.
