What is needed to initiate a disaster recovery program?
Perhaps the most important requirement that must be in place before starting a disaster recovery program is the desire to protect the organization’s critical assets from unplanned events that threaten their continued operation. Once that level of awareness is achieved, the next requirement is to secure senior management approval for funding to launch a disaster recovery program. Visible management support and encouragement of such a disaster recovery program are also key ingredients for success.
