Five Deadly Sins of Disaster Recovery Planning-7

Downtime due to equipment or software failure, human error, viruses or natural disasters can all cause an even bigger data disaster if the IT staff has not properly prepared. In fact, just preparing for disaster isn’t enough of a strategy for most organizations. Technologists at Logicalis, an international provider of integrated information and communications technology (ICT) solutions and services, say that organizations must also develop a strategy for recovery. Failure to do so can extend the length of the original downtime well past the disaster that caused it.

“Business continuity is like lighting a building in the evening. You want to first make sure that the lights will work before it actually gets dark,” says Ed Oakes, a business continuity and disaster recovery expert at Logicalis. “Standing around in the dark with a flashlight is not the time to figure out where your wiring went wrong.”

To improve your ability to recover data and get your organization back on track and operational following a disaster, Logicalis experts say to avoid these common mistakes.
