Gartner Group states that three out of five businesses that experience a disaster will not survive. Can your business afford to be interrupted by something as simple as a water leak, a wind storm, flood, tornado or even a hardware or software failure? Most business interruptions cannot be controlled or prevented. But you CAN take precautions to mitigate the risks associated with these potential interruptions. A business that simply believes “it won’t happen to them” or “we have good backups” almost always has a false sense of security. Not only do businesses need a plan, the plan must be tested, changes and updates tracked and failures documented. A Disaster Recovery Plan is not something you create for a file, it is a living document that should never end as long as your business survives.
Who created your plan? How often do you test it? Have you used an independent third-party to verify your backups lately to ensure your critical data is safe? There are many questions to ask.
