In today’s hectic and competitive business world, companies cannot afford any downtime or operational disruptions caused by sudden disasters. Any such disruption can result in profits loss, reputational damage and even regulatory penalties. Businesses cannot prevent disasters from striking, but they can and must prepare disaster recovery plans. The objective of a disaster recovery plan is to enable businesses to respond fast to any emergency, reduce damages and resume key operations as fast as possible.
Well prepared disaster recovery plans contain the necessary measures to cope with events such as natural disasters, power outages, communication outages, cyber-attacks, lost access to a facility and more. The shorter the recovery timeline, the smaller the damages, regardless of the source or nature of the disruption.
