Steps leading to an effective disaster recovery plan

A server crash can cause untold miseries. The following steps can help build an effective disaster recovery plan:

1. All electronic files, email messages and key data should have a full back up.
2. Once the backup has been prepared, the data should be moved on to another location.
3. The back up tapes must be revolved and recorded on a weekly basis.
4. Operating systems should be properly listed.
5. Critical software and manuals should be stored in offsite location.
6. The security and accessibility of backup data should be regularly checked.
7. Firewalls and controlled access doors should be installed.

Power failure can be a probable cause of panic. It is important to consider whether this is a recurring phenomenon or just an occasional blip before planning to ensure business continuity.

Measures like keeping a good generator and server ready in case of a crash can save a lot of money and headache for the business, which otherwise would suffer heavy losses in terms of business credibility and profitability.
