Why Disaster recover fails - Lack of planning, resources, and time

We all have plenty of day-to-day tasks to consume our time. Making time to work on what amounts to an insurance policy for your business, your DR plan, is often pushed off for more urgent matters that need immediate attention.

Unfortunately, tactical activities are easier to justify spending our time on than strategic activities. To help prevent this project from being pushed off for other tasks, get buy-in for this project from the necessary decision makers and make it a priority with allocated time and resources to bring it to fruition.

The risk analysis and business impact assessments can serve as excellent resources for getting management support.

Proper planning helps ensure that important details are not left unaccounted for and prevents having to go back and revisit entire sections.It is much better for your business to be proactive with its DR plan rather than reactive during or after an outage or catastrophe.
