How to Plan for Disaster Recovery
Disaster recovery scenario planning begins with identifying potential business interruption events. If you understand what the risks are, you can formulate a strategy of how to deal with them and mitigate, or at least limit, business impact. Once the disaster recovery scenarios are identified, the planning phase commences. This involves determining the probability of each scenario occurring and documenting the recovery operations.
