FREMONT, CA: “Resilience is all about being able to overcome the unexpected. Sustainability is about survival. The goal of resilience is to thrive” quotes James Cascio. However sometimes business professionals become idealistic and limit their forecasting, they skip the fact that a disaster may take place anytime. Therefore, it will be a smart move to plan Disaster Recovery Strategies along with resilience to get their boats on pace after any calamity.

According to a recent blog posted in Neoscopetechnology website there are few steps for developing a disaster recovery plan. The first one talks about protecting data as they consider that a business depends on company’s computers and the information stored in them. They suggest to keep data in-house to allow quick data restoration after server goes down and off-site to cope up if any natural disaster strikes the working place.

Second basic need is to have backup place to move entire business after the calamity either it’s a brick-and-mortar store or e-business.  After relocating one can install the systems and relieve off-site backup files and get their business started within a few days. If people have business on web then using their backup they can get their Domain Name System address changed.

Another consideration should be having an Insurance policy which will cover all aspects of potential losses and understanding complete norms of policy adopted by company is essential part as Insurance companies have guidelines to deny some petitions.

There are few supplemented strides any organization can take like designating personnel who can get their employees out safely during disaster and few who can have detail plan to recover everything including getting business on tracks.

Money is a vital thing, every company rather than not depending on Insurance companies can have separate funds to meet some urgent needs aftermath of disaster. “Everything is about survival and being flexible to forecasts will lead to recovery strategies, more one is open to challenge more are they who flourish”.
