Disaster Recovery- It’s All About Getting Your Basics Right

By Avena Sowell Subscribe to RSS | May 4th 2012 | Views:

Most companies commonly claim that they regularly keep track of their disaster recovery plan and are always in with a consistent effort of even upgrading their recovery systems and make them more comprehensive and compact. However, in reality, evidences suggest that most of the enterprises are fairly lagging behind in terms of developing and making proper use of the disaster recovery services. So, here are a few useful ways through which companies can look to get their disaster recovery programs improved and updated for their own convenience and better safety and security prospects.

Get All Your Exercise Objectives Defined Specifically Upfront: - Frankly speaking, having a disaster recovery system just for the sake of having one is of no use. As a user, it is your responsibility to make sure that your system is technologically upgraded with the required tools and accessories to serve you to its fullest capability.

As a part of this process, it is vital to define the exercise objectives clearly to be able to succeed in the mission of making a system fully functional. Next, talking of “exercise objectives”, we refer to the parameters or values based on which the merit of a system can be judged. It might be something associated to recovery time, recovery status, database recovery infrastructure or something else. Getting all these parameters defined and described at the top will be more than useful in getting a fair estimate of the compactness of the systems.

Make Sure To Include Your Business Stakeholders: - The business owners do play a key role in exercising disaster recovery plan but at the same the role of the stake holders is also vital to say the least. Make sure that you include all your business stakeholders as a part of the exercising process right from the beginning to the completion of successful recovery of the services. This will help you in two possible ways. On one hand, it will keep you in the safer side as the Stakeholders will also be fully aware of the status and quality of the disaster recovery plan and services. On the other hand, it will also help you in getting a fair estimate of the performance of the system.

Be Smart In Staff Management: - Try to educate a good part of your work force simultaneously instead of relying on any one or a small team of employees as the availability of employees during disasters is always risky and questionable. Therefore, try to impart proper training among a bulk of your work force. Assign them multiple roles during the DR exercises to make them versatile and also instigate a feeling of self confidence among them.

Develop Well Crafted Risk Scenarios: - Try to hold periodic mock risk scenarios to test the skills and abilities of your response team. Exposure to realistic situation is going to help significantly in familiarizing the employees to real time fall over which in turn will enable them to deal with competitive situations better if such a need arises at some stage later.
