Include HR in DR Planning

by mark In reply to DR plans must address the ...

The human factor is exactly why I always include the Human Resources department in all DR planning sessions. Typically, following a disaster, the staff is working long, frantic hours. Having HR involved can help provide support to the staff as they are are implementing the plan.

Also, in the event of a major community-wide disaster, HR can communicate with employees and provide additional assistance to families, etc.

Many clients I have worked with have forgotten things like, if a blackout hits your datacenter, which is in your building, none of your end-users are going to be able to use thier terminals to access anything, even if you bring up the systems in another building.
