Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity Planning
“Comprehensive Solutions was not only able to improve our approach to Disaster Recovery Planning and work with my team to increase our level of success, but developed a 'scorecard' so that we could measure consistency and improvement in our processes from one DR test to the next. Their approach, expertise, and commitment to our success added considerable value to our overall efforts.”
Jim M. / Director of IT Operations
A disaster can be defined as many different things to many different companies. What most companies have in common is that they fail to adequately prepare for what they consider a disaster. This leads to a false sense of security that can lead to unnecessary loss.
The reasons for failure are many, but the reasons for success are few (click here to learn more). The trick is determining where you are now and then bridging the gap to where you really need to be. Expertise, experience, and proven processes help you achieve that goal.
One of the first steps is to acknowledge that every business is unique. Infrastructure, computer systems (hardware and software), proprietary processes, specialized procedures, etc. are just some of the things that make your business unique. Sometimes those differences are subtle and taken for granted as "normal operations" or "part of the culture." Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plans need to embrace those subtleties and differences to recreate an environment that meets your true requirements.
Typical planning efforts include the following major steps:
- Establishment of goals.
- Documentation of the environment.
- Risk Identification and Management.
- Plan Development.
- Plan Execution, Refinement, and Maintenance.
This is usually accomplished in two phases, with Phase I accomplishing the first three steps listed above.
