Here are five questions every company can ask themselves regarding their Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan.
1. When was the last time our plan was tested?
2. What was the outcome of the last test?
3. As a result of the last test, what changes or updates were made?
4. Did the changes or updates from the last test reflect the same changes or updates within our company?
5. When is our next test?
Testing is a vital part of a Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan. Without testing, there is only one way to know whether a plan is viable or not.
