- The goal of a disaster recovery plan is to minimize the costs resulting from losses of, or damages to, the resources or capabilities of your IT facilities. The success of any disaster recovery plan depends a great deal on being able to determine the risks associated with data loss. What is the impact to our business if the data is lost?
- Are we a listed company, if so ask ourselves this: Disaster recovery planning, or its lack, will affect a companys equity position. why buy stock in a company that will disappear should the data center go down?
- Has your organization ever had to invoke its disaster recovery plan which included the CRM solution and if so was the recovery time objective met and how long did it take to return to your primary solution?
- Does the organization require detailed Business Recovery Plans for all the organizations business entities, or whether the focus is on how the IT Disaster Recovery Plans supports the business entities?
- Disaster recovery planning, also called contingency planning, is the process of preparing your organizations assets and operations in case of a disaster. but what do we define as a disaster?
- Have policies and procedures been established to ensure the continuity of data services in an event of a data breach, loss, or other disaster (this includes a disaster recovery plan)?
- Has specific responsibility been assigned for the execution of business continuity and disaster recovery plans (either within or outside of the information security function)?
- What are some of our practices for having application consistent snapshots across multiple persistent storage systems for disaster recovery and or high availability purposes?
- From downtime costs to regulatory compliance, the need for strategic business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) planning is clear, but what does that mean for your organization?
