Disaster Recovery Planning Guide

Disaster Recovery Planning Guide
From a business perspective, the definition of disaster encompasses both natural disasters and terrorist acts and also those which can interrupt operations and pose a threat that cannot be ignored. Whatever is at stake - customers, reputation, and even, in the case of hospitals, lives - any unexpected IT interruption represents a potential disaster which companies must either be prepared to avoid or from which they must be prepared to recover.

Download this Disaster Recovery Planning Guide to gain a business perspective on what is often mistakenly limited to a consideration of technological issues alone. Learn to build a comprehensive framework that goes beyond technology to address the business needs, and includes:
  • Assessing your business exposure to disaster
  • Reviewing your options for cost-effective preparation and recovery
  • Setting the expectations for performance that direct technology decisions
  • Testing your plan for vulnerabilities.
Learn why the most crucial considerations are determined more by business needs than IT requirements and how disaster recovery decisions are underscored by business demands.
