Simply having a Disaster Recover (DR) Plan in place may not be enough to protect your business from looming disasters. Disasters are unpredictable, and waiting to test them in the midst of a real disaster spells, well, DISASTER. If your Disaster Recovery Plan has not been reviewed and tested you may be in for a rude awakening. A faulty plan is no plan at all. There are many ways to test a DR Plan, and below we’ve listed five primary test methodologies.
The aforementioned testing scenarios are important. Equally so is the frequency in which they are performed. Deciding on the frequency may be dependent on what systems are affected and the effect of downtime on the success of your operations. Testing your DR Plan with in-house staff can open gaps and critical failure points, but you may also consider reaching out to a third-party company that has industry experience with DR Plan development and testing.
