Disaster Planning is about developing the ability to respond to an interruption in services by restoring an organization’s critical business functions. Disaster recovery for computer systems and services is only one component of an effective “continuity plan”.
Disaster planning is meant to include the planning and preparations which are necessary to minimize loss and ensure continuity of the critical business functions of an organization in the event of disaster.
In light of recent data breaches, threats from computer viruses, worms, and hackers, disaster planning has taken on a new sense of urgency.
Disaster planning and preparedness should be a crucial component of enterprise risk management and business continuity planning. It is essential for ensuring continuity of operations. Disaster preparedness means being prepared for anything. Good planning and preparedness activities can significantly reduce the impact of a disaster and may prevent business failure. The Disaster Plan is your key for preparedness, but can only protect you if properly implemented; including acquiring the necessary equipment and services, and testing with proven exercises and drills.
