Businesses rely heavily on being able to conduct their operations without interruption in order to maintain revenue. However, every organisation is susceptible to the crippling effects of a major disaster, be it man made or natural in origin. The ability to recover quickly and effectively to state of normal operations is the key focus of Disaster Recovery. Particular attention is paid to communications, as it is this infrastructure that can be most heavily affected during a disaster.
Disaster recovery is applicable everywhere. Restoration of effective communications is the first and foremost priority that drives a Disaster Recovery Plan, as it underpins the ability to execute the plan itself – from communicating the various activities related to the plan to staff and providers, as well as informing customers and the public as applicable to the organisation.
