When did you test your Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery plan last?

December 21, 2012

Any plan that is not tested is just a pile of paper.

Many businesses across the region have yet to implement a business continuity and disaster recovery plan as part of their company planning. Some have a business plan, less have a marketing and sales plan and even fewer have a fully tested and proven business continuity and disaster recovery strategy.

Over the past few months there have been many examples of why having a plan is important for businesses of all sizes. Small business, mid-market and corporations across the country need to have a business continuity and disaster recovery plan in place and just as importantly, to have it regularly tested.

Some companies who have tested their plan even test their employees to ensure they know exactly what to do in case of an emergency. Testing them to understand where they are to meet in case of a fire, who gets called when an emergency arises and, from the Information Technology side of the business, what applications and data are to be recovered first.

There are many factors to consider when deploying and testing your business continuity plan and disaster recovery strategies.
