Disaster Planning

A Technology Disaster can be caused by any number of reasons, but they all result in the same final place.  “How do I recover?”. Your Disaster Plan needs to be developed and tested carefully before the disaster happens to insure you can recover to a point you are comfortable with. A plan can be very complex or very simple and begins with determining your needs, tolerance for downtime, costs of lost time and productivity.

Please visit some of the links below to articles that refer to disaster planning, types of disasters and general information on this topic.

Ready Business Mentoring Initiative ---This new initiative is designed to help owners and managers of small and medium-sized businesses prepare for emergencies.

Ready Business -- Prepare. Plan. Stay Informed

Questions that will come up and need to be addressed:

  • How do I get my financial and operational information back?
  • How do I get new hardware or can it be repaired?
  • How do I navigate to a recovery?
  • How long will it take?
  • Who will help me accomplish this recovery?
  • What is my maximum downtime I can have before it becomes a problem?
  • How do I get my employees back to work?
  • Do I have the information and legal documentation to re-open my business?

These are all valid questions as well as there will be more for your particular business. What we can do for you is help to bring this all together to develop and implement a plan of recovery.

Since every Disaster Plan is business specific, the cost and time to develop a plan will vary with the business needs and scope. We will be glad to sit down with you at no cost to discuss putting a plan together. Call us before a disaster occurs to be ready.
