What is a Disaster Recovery Plan
A disaster recovery plan (DRP) is a step by step guide on how to return your business to full capacity following a disaster. A DRP is highly individualized and unique to your business. They include detailed information on how to restore your systems, functions, and data when it is lost or compromised. A DRP will prioritize what is mission critical and needs to be brought back first. They help bring order and direction to the efforts following a disaster.
A large part of having a DRP is making sure that you have safety measures and backups in place to prevent disasters. One common disaster that affects businesses are malware viruses. There are over 400,000 new malware variants detected PER DAY! You need to be proactive in your defense practices to protect yourself from the multitude of threats that are waiting for your business.

Protecting your business can get complicated. Our businesses are becoming more reliant on technology, and just like all mediums, technology reliance comes with risks. A disaster can come in many shapes and sizes. Not all disasters can be prevented, but they can all be prepared for.

A disaster recovery service provider can help you both before and after a disaster.

A Good Disaster Recovery Plan
The first step in creating a good disaster recovery plan is to prioritize all of your systems and functions. You need to make a list, or depth chart, of what needs to be brought back first, second, third etc. By prioritizing these tasks you’ll be able to save precious time following a disaster and return to operating capacity as soon as possible.
Here is a list of important systems to consider in your disaster recovery plan:
- Phones (most commonly overlooked in DRP’s)
- Customer Facing Websites
- Data Restoration (accessing backups/replications/images)
- Communicating with Employees (it’s a good idea to enlist an SMS service that can send mass texts to employees following a disaster)
A key component of a disaster recovery plan is a network of precautions and defenses. The following are a few key defenses or practices that need to be a part of your DRP:
Backups store copies of your data, usually on other networks. These backups can be set to automatically backup your data without any extra steps. Once set up, they are practically self-sufficient.
A replication is different from a backup because a replication is an exact copy of your working server and network. So, if your network goes down and you lose everything on site, a backup can restore your files, images, and other data only. You would then need to reset your system and network. A replication can be switched over and start working instantly with all of your passwords, preferences, security settings, etc. all ready to go.
A good DRP uses both replications and backups. Replications are often saved for mission-critical operations and functions because they take more time and are more expensive. A good mix of backups and replications will help to keep your data, servers, and networks safe after a disaster.
You need good anti-virus software, firewalls, and other protective software to safeguard you. At Executech, we are software experts. Contact us today to find out what software and programs will best fit your needs.
