During a disruption or major crisis situation, a disaster recovery plan provides the tools to keep your organisation functioning or, in the event of an interruption, to swiftly resume operations.
Whether you’re dealing with a natural disaster, an economic crisis, a pandemic or any number of possibilities, an effective plan addresses how to restore employee functioning, business system software, hardware, IT infrastructure services, technology user services and data.
And as you train for various disaster scenarios and prepare for possible threats, you’ll build the muscle memory foundational to business resilience.
