A bit surprised

by dgilman In reply to Spring clean your DR syst ...

I tend to work for businesses sized under $40 million in sales, and less than 500 employees. It seems to me that the message of this article is common sense. I do think it is good to provide those "yeah, I know I should be doing this" articles, and to provide them on a regular basis. But the content struck me as "Dilbert's Boss". Perhaps a checklist, an evaluation spreadsheet, a case study, any of these things would have provided a better foothold in my memory.

Once again, the reminder is essential and appreciated.

That wouldn't always work

by MikeTalonNYC In reply to A bit surprised

Unfortunately, since every environment is different, it would be impossible to create a checklist for every type of spring cleaning.

Also, while this sounds like common sense, you would be amazed how many companies never, and I mean never update their DR plans.
