Disaster Recovery Planning

What happens when a disaster strikes? According to recent data most companies do not survive when a major disaster strikes, while others lose significant amounts of money during the recovery phase, due to the lack of preparation. Preparing for a disaster is a necessity and many companies either operate without a formal Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) or never test their written plans.

This workshop will provide you with a framework for designing and implementing a well-organized DRP. You will gain tools, knowledge and skills in areas of risk assessment, critical needs evaluation, recovery plan objectives, designing the DRP, and simulation testing. Topics covered will include risk mitigation, organizational preparation, emergency response intelligence, and disaster recovery management systems.
