Everyone would like to go to sleep at night knowing if they experience a disaster that they are able to recover quickly and successfully. There is only ONE way to accomplish a good night’s sleep when it comes to your recovery and that is to TEST your solution. Companies should have a DR plan in place and a solution that can be validated in the event they experience an outage or a disaster that would potentially interrupt their business.
Dear Victor, My company has just announced that we are going to implement an enterprise wide Continuity Program. While this is terrific news, I am part of the steering committee and we aren’t sure whether to begin with a Disaster Recovery Plan for IT or Business Continuity Plans for the various departments. Can you help us with this?
