There are many precautions you can take to prevent fire: fire doors, sprinkler systems, fire blankets, etc. These measures are only effective for small fires, and will only slow it down. In case of fire, data is often completely destroyed and your hardware will be useless. Do you have a plan in place in case such an event takes place? Where will your employees work? When will your data and applications be up-and-running again? Is there a good back-up available? Fire in a neighboring company can have just as many serious consequences as a fire in your own building: when fire fighters arrive, they may shut down the entire industrial site, utilities may fail and hazardous substances may be released. Either way, you will not be able to access your IT system. 5W’s Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) helps you prepare for such an event. Your employees will be able to hit the ground running in your “Defection IT environment”. Your company will soon be back to normal!
5W ensures your data and applications remain available, so you will be back on track in no time!
