Anyone who has has had to work from home after a hurricane or other natural disaster usually can’t wait to get back into the office. But what needs to happen to ensure a successful transition back?
Disaster Recovery Plans define the office conditions and services needed for your company and the key employees and vendors required to get you back up and running.
Before Disaster Recovery can even be considered, Business Continuity and more specifically a Business Continuity Plan, MUST be created. A Business Continuity Plan is the bridge from Normal Operations – Though Disaster – and back to New Normal Operations. Much of the stress that accompanies any disaster can be eliminated once you know your business is still functional. Revenue is a huge burden that does not have to be carried around and it allows you and some of your team to concentrate on the recovery. It also gives you the financial means to execute much of the recovery.
Now many companies utilize a disaster to improve offices or replace old equipment, which is fine. There is no reason to buy an old computer to replace the old computer that is now underwater. BUT with proper planning evolutionary steps can be made to not just return to the status quo.
