Disaster Recovery - Planning Process

Disaster recovery planning is an ongoing process, not a static document or software program.There are four important phases to the recovery planning process.

  1. Risk and Business Impact Analysis
    This analysis prioritizes a company's business functions and resources, and identifies the critical business functions those that must continue, while others can be restored later.This phase also identifies steps that prevent minor events from becoming disasters.
  2. Strategic Planning
    This step evaluates a wide range of recovery alternatives for critical business functions.We help our clients balance initial and ongoing costs with recovery time frames for each strategy.With an objective comparison of costs and benefits, our clients can make informed decisions regarding their recovery capabilities.
  3. Business Continuation Plan Documentation
    This documentation phase organizes employees into recovery action teams.Each team will have specific objectives, resources and procedures to activate their recovery.Companies choose from the best format for their business continuation plans by business function, product line or specific location.
  4. Testing, Training and Maintenance
    This phase exercises a company's evolving recovery capabilities and familiarizes its employees with their roles for plan implementation. Without testing and training, the plan is just a document.An effective plan is as dynamic as the company, so it demands updating as changes occur.
