What would you do right now if your servers or computers crashed, were stolen, or got hit with some nasty ransomeware?
It’s going to happen, and you know it. Murphy’s law says it will happen at the worst possible time, too. It might have a natural cause like a fire, flood, tornado, earthquake, or hurricane. Or it could be from the construction down the street, cutting access to the internet, power, or other vital utility. Your servers or workstations may fail. Perhaps your network crashes, or there is a hacker on your system. Hardware is complicated and prone to failure. Software is complicated and succumbs to viruses and malware. Data becomes corrupted. Technology breaks. Are you gambling your business’s survival on your present Disaster Recovery Plan? Do you have a formal Disaster Recovery Plan?
“Almost 40% of small businesses never reopen their doors following a disaster.”
— FEMA **
Formally called a Disaster Recovery Plan, the goal is to keep your organization alive after a catastrophic disaster. At first, everything screeches to a halt. Then you need to establish a base level of operations and essential customer service as you invoke your plan to restore full functionality. Only after the plan is carried out will you be back to business as usual. It won’t happen by accident. And it won’t happen on its own. The Disaster Recovery Plan will calm the stress and direct the nervous energies of everyone involved towards the same goal: saving your organization and getting it back to work.
Not every emergency is a full-blown catastrophe, but it can stop the show and hurt your business or organization. It still requires a plan to handle the crisis, and so a Disaster Recovery Plan can define the most mission-critical aspects of the business and how to take steps to get them running again in case of any problems. The organization will be ready for both minor and major mishaps. Once an incident occurs, you need only refer to your DRP, and the steps to solving your issue are there. You seize control over the situation, and your business is back to full throttle with minimal impact.
Using their own resources, it is often far too expensive for a small or medium sized business and organzations to have a full-fledged Disaster Recovery Plan in place. Large corporations have massive data centers that ensure they (almost) never have downtime regardless of what goes wrong. But even banks and Google and Amazon have outages at times. Think of what happens when your business goes out of business, even for a little while.
