When disaster strikes, survival depends on preparedness

Most American businesses are not prepared; although they have a strategy for data recovery, many companies fail to consider where their employees will be working after a disaster. A critical component of business continuity planning includes moving staff to a safe place where they can access company data and resume operations.

Gartner research indicates that most companies can endure disruptions that last no more than seven days. It is recommended that organizations adopt disaster recovery and business continuity plans capable of sustaining them for at least one month post-disaster.
