Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery plans should be well practiced so that the key players are familiar with the specific actions they will need to take should a disaster occur. DR plans must also be adaptable and routinely updated, e.g. if new people, a new branch office, or new hardware or software are added to an organization they should promptly be incorporated into the organization's disaster recovery plan.

A fundamental shift in thinking has to take place in the minds of state and local IT leaders. Having a plan of action in case of disaster has to not only be realized but met with urgency. Agencies must consider all these facets of their organization as well as update and practice their plan if they want to maximize their recovery after a disaster.
