The definition and required content of a disaster recovery plan is an unknown to many and the steps involved can be confusing. Nevertheless, with some technical assistance and a level of understanding of risk and available mitigation strategies, they are a simple concept to understand.

Despite their criticality, the number of businesses that do not have adequate recovery plans - particularly in the small business sector - is quite staggering. Even within the community who have them, many become unfit for purpose following business change and a lack of review.

Contrary to belief, an IT disaster recovery plan is not a backup tape, nor it an assumption that because part of your infrastructure is outsourced that it is not your problem. It is a subset of an overarching business continuity plan developed to ensure your business survives in the event of a disaster – irrespective of where you data and services are held.

Realistic and practical measures can be defined, sought, documented and tested – covering disasters from a single server outages right through to a major flood or fire.
