In the wake of recent network disruptions, many businesses are taking steps to improve their disaster recovery capabilities, but more can be done. The key for any business is to test its BC/DR plans regularly; an effective test will determine whether the company is adequately prepared for all but the most severe disruptions.

The data and communications network is the foundation of most businesses today; damage it, and the business is temporarily crippled – or worse.
