Disaster Recovery Begins With Having A Plan
Business disasters didn't begin on September 11, and they won't end after the last terrorist is flushed out of his hiding place. In fact, if terrorists thought that the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon would deal a body blow to America's information economy, they hit the wrong buildings. The occupants of those buildings have some of the most thoroughly planned backup and recovery systems in the world, as events have since proved. As indicated above, the only disaster that will ever put one out of business completely is the one that never considered and planned reactive steps should it occur.
