As a response to some of our reader’s inquiries, and to offer assistance to the managers and members of business continuity and disaster preparation and prevention teams, we suggest that you become familiar with a disaster recovery preparation and planning guide that was released several years ago by the security specialists’ organization called ASIS. Even if you have to update some of its materials to a 2010 level, this guide is full of valuable BC, DR and security related information.
The guidelines, self-assessment questionnaires and general security and disaster recovery directed information can also be a great addition to an organization’s business continuity plan as well as a valuable reference resource for that organization’s BC and DR related reading library.
Some of the related information in this guide has been edited from materials provided by the American Red Cross and the Department of Homeland Security.
As stated in this guide, “With a little planning and a lot of common sense, we can all be better prepared to face the unknown”.
