It is another well known fact that whenever a disaster occurs, it spares nothing, not the men and neither the non living things. May it be of any shape or size, everything is devastated. The major loss besides the human loss is the property loss. It might get dislodged, destroyed or dislocated which makes it impossible to get it back. The telephone lines as well as the net connections are affected badly and often get disrupted thus making it difficult for people to communicate with each other and make actions. The whole blame of poor signals and service is then put on the IT firm, thus if you don’t want your firm to be like that, adopt disaster recovery plan.
It happens a lot of times that people tend to waste time over useless discussion at the time of the acting scenario. Like when a disaster strikes and no plan has been formulated or exercised before, it is a general case scenario that they will tend to fight, leave or make the situation more worse. This creates hustle and no execution of any proper plan. However if a proper plan has been exercised, the people tend to act accordingly and perform their assigned tasks. There are various things that are required for this:
- Proper budget
- Execution stage
- Trained and meticulous staff
- Will power in people
This is beneficial in preserving the loss to the IT infrastructure and hence improving upon the data signals at the time of disaster.
It is generally said that nothing is perfect thus there are no disaster recovery plans that are fully correct. They always need some minor changes and additions. There are always certain areas to be improved upon. The strategies that can be acted upon are:
- Preventive measures
- Detective measures
- Corrective measures
These were certain methods that can ensure good recovery after a disaster has occurred. The skills of the employees are developed and they learn more regarding how to act in a situation under stress. This is very important for the business employees. One more advantage that the plan serves is of reducing the time wastage over useless discussion. The employees tend to act first when they know and remember the full planning however they may tend to escape or panic in case of absence of planning and striking of a disaster. This is a common case scenario seen in large IT firms. This may happen every other time.
There are several measures that can be undertaken and they are installing fire alarms, having equipped tools that are updated as well, having meticulous employees that have will to work under stressful conditions. This can aid in saving the company as a whole and thus everything including the infrastructure can be prevented. These methods are always advisable and tend to give a strong impact thus minimizing risks to general health and people. Every company should undertake the disaster recovery plans.
