Funny you ask. Many people think they have DR procedures in place (backup this, restore to that, call this and that vendor) but often learn the hard way that their business was in no way prepared to recover from disaster – much less maintain any semblance of business continuity. In my work performing security assessments I can say that DR/business continuity is typically handled like <a href=”http://www.principlelogic.com/mobile.html”>mobile security</a>: we don’t know what we’ve got, where it’s at, how’s it being protected, and how we’re going to handle rough times. It’s a good cost savings measure right now but not good for the business long term.

The best things you can do for your disaster recover method is to constantly backup your entire hard disk drive into incremental and scheduled. You can do this daily or weekly depending on the need of your organization in backing up the important files stored in your hard disk.

    D/R plans - for databae, source code, networks, on z/OS or on PCs,... but to try to answer your question... you need to be able to bring up all "important" systems and applications at an offsite location. And maybe consider what happens if the disaster strikes some of your key players.

    We have DR but like KevinBeaver said we were not ready when we really had a disaster. After dealing with the unhappy customer we are now going back to our drawing board to see how best to handle this in the future
