Simply put, your disaster recovery plan takes care of the technology that supports your business.
Your business continuity plan comprises all of the processes and planning necessary for every aspect of your business to function in the midst of disruption. An assessment is necessary to analyze and map out key assets, threats, and various disaster scenarios.
While a disaster recovery plan is part of a reliable business continuity plan, business continuity is more than just making sure your servers failover during an outage.
Your plan should be precise and contain information like names of people who would be in charge of a disaster recovery process, location of emergency operations center, resources required to get business operations up and running, as well as how to inform affected clients and the public in general.
After the test, review and analyze the data that you have collected and make the necessary tweaks to your DRP.
Finally, make sure the DRP you have drafted has the support of senior management for purposes of accessing the required funding and approval. One of the most effective ways of ensuring this does not happen is by putting in place a disaster recovery plan (DRP).


Your disaster recovery plan should include a backup strategy so that your business doesn’t lose critical data during a crisis, as well as a recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO), which determine how much data you can afford to lose and how soon you need to have your systems up and running.
A DRP is basically a simply a plan that a business or an organization sets up to ensure continuity of operations in the event of a disaster that causes the loss or destruction of IT equipment or business data. With the DRP in place, it is wise to carry out a test run to determine whether the plan works well and people involved know what to do.
This simulation should test as many scenarios as possible to identify weaknesses that may jeopardize disaster recovery plans. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), up to 93% of businesses that experience a data disaster fold up within three years. While your disaster recovery plan is focused entirely on IT resource failover, your business continuity plan should also account for key business operations. All in all, A DRP can help organizations resume their operations within a short period following an IT disaster. Some of the key elements that should feature in a DRP include operational risk assessment, development of a viable DRP, and modalities for carrying out test runs.
