No one ever expects a disaster to occur. As we have been seeing around the world lately in Japan and other countries, Mother Nature has no regard for manmade structures. So what happens if there is a disaster and everything is gone? We have decided that it is important to make sure we have a plan, a Disaster Relief Recovery Plan.
There are multiple different combinations of disasters that could happen and we are preparing ourselves for them all. From common interruptions such as power failures and weather conditions that don’t permit us to work on location, to the other side of the spectrum-the more horrifying circumstances such as fires, floods or more severe weather occurrences. It is important that if something of the sort is to happen we have all the information in one place and it is accessible.
By putting together several different documents such as risk assessments, recovery step plans, vital records, contact lists and inventory, we are prepared in case something is to happen. We have collected data such as prime contacts for network issues, software problems and customer service. Also categories like equipment and important client information. We have been meeting periodically to review what is being done and to make sure we are incorporating all the vital information. Everyone is working together to get all the components together and properly put into documents.
We are making sure to cover all our grounds. That way no matter what happens, we are exceptionally prepared to recover and get back to business. Making sure that we have back-ups and off site locations, where we can secure everything, is a vital part to making sure we can get the ball rolling in case of an emergency. When all the documentation is finished and put together, making sure everything runs smoothly is also something we intend on doing in a test run. There is no use in a plan if it is not drilled and tested itself. It is important to be aware and prepared in case something does happen, we do not panic, but rather pick up our Disaster Recovery Relief Plan and get to work.
