Implementing a Disaster Recovery Plan

You can develop procedures to recover from common disasters, such as hardware failure or corrupt directories and information stores.

You can also develop contingency plans to recover from major disasters, such as fires, hurricanes, and earthquakes. The plan your organization needs depends on your location. For example, an international organization with facilities in California should develop contingency plans for earthquakes and the potential loss of facilities and services. The plan could require reserve capacity and duplicate services in facilities in Colorado, England, or Japan. As a result, when an earthquake occurs in California, the system continues to operate normally for the rest of the organization.
