This comprehensive reference is designed to help your business survive any possible kind of disruption, and gives you the tools to protect your organization in the event of extraordinary circumstances.
In the event of an emergency, does your business have a recovery system in place? What happens if the power goes out? Do your people know hot to get out of the building or where to look for information? What procedures have you already instituted to back up your company-wide and personnel data? Do you know what to do to recover from the loss of your material resources?
The Disaster Recovery Handbook answers all these questions for you, giving you all the tools you need to establish a complete disaster recovery plan. You’ll learn how to assemble a recovery team, set up an emergency operations center, and put your entire set of procedures in writing, protecting your business before the fact to safeguard against what could otherwise become an unrecoverable situation.
You’ll learn how to create a system for backing up all your vital electronic and physical information such as invoices, checks, inventory levels, and receipts, and keep your customers from being left out in the cold as you regroup in the wake of any unexpected circumstance. You’ll also find all the information you need to help your Human Resources department get a handle on the “people” side of any emergency. The book takes into consideration every possible type of disaster, and gives you the practical solutions you need to protect your people and your resources.
