A Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is essential for any successful company and its business operations because a disaster today can jeopardize everything tomorrow. And the question isn’t really whether you have a Disaster Recovery Plan or not. It’s what kind do you have?
If you have a specific, actionable plan, with resources dedicated to its success, your plan includes a quick recovery and a continuation of your business. If you don’t, the default plan — cross your fingers and hope for the best — includes significant downtime, a failure to meet your obligations to clients and vendors, critical data loss, and an uncertain future for your company.
