INTRODUCTION TO DISASTER RECOVERY PLANNING
As the world has virtually shrunk to become a global village and business opening and closingtimes have been replaced with round-the-clock operations and almost all organizations — whether commercial or governmental — rely on some form of technology to manage the various parts of their operations. A disruption to the availability of any of these resources, if even for afew hours, can have serious consequences for their ability to function at normal capacity. For organizations that provide mission critical services such as power plants, telecommunicationsfacilities, and national defense agencies, disruptions must be kept to a minimum or, if possible,avoided altogether.The threats to an organization, whether from the increase in political uncertainty on a globalscale, decreased stability of national power networks, or the changing climate conditions andrelated severe weather, have seemingly been increasing over the past decade. Further, newthreats are continually looming on the horizon, such as the outbreak of highly contagiousdiseases, digital blackmail and hacking, and new methods used by terrorists for wide-scaledestruction. And in addition to these, there are of course internal threats, whether damage causedaccidentally through human error or purposeful damage to data by an employee.Therefore, how an organization responds to threats during and after a crisis will determinewhether they emerge on the other side intact or cause them to cease operations entirely. This iswhere disaster recovery planning comes into play.

business continuity plan (BCP)
includes planning for non-IT related aspects such as key personnel, facilities, crisis communication and reputation protection, and should refer to thedisaster recovery plan (DRP) for IT related infrastructure recovery / continuity.
