Establishing a disaster recovery audit program

Establishing a disaster recovery audit program

The crux of the disaster recovery planning process is the development of concrete strategies and plans to recover IT hardware in case of disaster. Such plans are formulated on the basis of risk and business impact assessments that tell you exactly what is in jeopardy in case of unforeseen events. These are then made part of the DNA of the organisation by testing, training and staff awareness. Finally, these plans have to evolve as your organisation and its IT systems change over time, through auditing, maintenance and continuous improvement of your disaster recovery programme.
