Start by identifying the most crucial systems and the effect their outage would have on the business. The greater the potential impact, the faster the recovery time must be. Consider your building, network, data, applications, and workforce. 2 Carefully evaluate and select reliable business partners to reduce risks and assist in planning. Choose service providers with documented BC/DR plans, established Service Level Agreements (SLAS), and robust security measures. Select networking partners, cloud service providers and data centers with redundant connectivity and automatic failovers. Consider hiring a Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) provider to help with your plan. Create a detailed plan with Recovery Time/Point Objectives (RTOS/RPOS) for critical items. Figure out how quickly you need to recover (RTO) and how much data loss you can tolerate (RPO) to resume operations. Consider improving network security and redundancy; implementing regular data backup/disk mirroring procedures; and instituting cloud-based failover/failback to virtualized applications, systems and infrastructure. Test your plan, optimize it, and retest it regularly to ensure it remains current and effective. 4 Test your plan, inside and out. Find the gaps and address them before you have an actual disruption. Do live tests to simulate a real event, include service providers, and exercise complete failover, restore, and validation processes. Review your plan regularly as your business grows and changes. Don't let a lack of planning turn into a business nightmare. Visit our BC/DR resource center for more information on how you can prepare your business for the next disaster.
