Nobody plans to have a disaster, but you can plan to mitigate the effects of a disaster. We look at the whole company IT installation and how the business would be affected if that installation were seriously degraded.
One obvious area is the need to carry out reliable data backups, so that data can be restored, after a data loss.
Workstation PCs - replacement time / was the data backed up / installed programs
Building power - Where can I get standby power from TODAY!
Remote Workers - They need to be connected to your server
Internet connection down - Temporary Internet facility
Then there are new premises (temporary or permanent), replacement of stock, additional staff, compliance failures, insurance claims, failure to meet contracted orders and on and on and on.
