Many large businesses have sophisticated plans to relocate thousands of employees and their associated support systems to new offices within hours of any disaster. They spend a lot of time and money maintaining additional computer systems and up-to-date copies of their information that can be brought up and running quickly in the event of any problem.
Smaller businesses don’t have the resources to invest in disaster recovery at this level, but your planning process should be just the same, albeit on a smaller scale. First, you need to consider:
What IT systems are critical to your business?
What systems could you manage without?
How long could you trade for if you lost your critical IT systems?
How will you keep running the business if you lost your office?
Think through some of the issues you may face and the likelihood of an incident. For example if you live on top of a hill you’re unlikely to be flooded, but your home office may be damaged due to high winds.
Ultimately the same problem needs addressing – how can you continue to trade with limited or no IT systems? Work out in advance what you’d need do to recover from various likely (and less likely but plausible) scenarios.
