The astonishing piece that is often left out of recovery plans
It’s astonishing in it’s simplicity. The business often gets left out of disaster recovery and the resilience picture. Disaster recovery is the continuity of your information systems but you certainly can’t recreate your business with simply a server. That server has to live somewhere, it needs people to love and care for it and it needs a purpose. Your IT manager cannot determine your purpose. It must be held in the core vision of the organization. Your plan needs the core competencies of your organization – how you create value. This is the deliverable for the Business Impact Analysis process. Don’t leave yours out!
