Collecting data for a disaster recovery plan

This White Paper, the third in our three-part set on disaster recovery planning, presents particular methods and materials that can expedite the data collection process. The first two papers deal with the planning process itself and with specific methods for organising and writing the plan.

Disaster recovery concerns all departments

Disaster recovery is a concern of the entire organisation, not just data processing. To develop an effective plan, all departments should be involved.

Within all departments the critical needs should be identified. Critical needs include all information and equipment needed in order to continue operations should a department be destroyed or become inaccessible.
