Cartoon: Your Disaster Recovery Plan Won’t Work If You Forget This One Thing

18th September 2018

In theory, your disaster recovery plan works perfectly. But have you told your staff about it?

Creating the plan isn’t enough. DR decisions made in the board room must be communicated effectively to those who need to take action. If your employees don’t know what you expect them to do, you’ll be left without the proverbial paddle.

Inform employees about the DR plan long before a crisis, not in the throes of a hurricane or a cyber attack. Assign roles, build those into job descriptions, and conduct regular training and testing. When DR training is part of employees’ routine, it’ll make all the difference when disaster strikes.
