3 Disaster Recovery 100 Success Secrets Gerard Blokdijk There has never been a Disaster Recovery manual like this. 100 Success Secrets is not about the ins and outs of Disaster Recovery. Instead, it answers the top 100 questions that we are asked and those we come across in forums, our consultancy and education programs. It tells you exactly how to deal with those questions, with tips that have never before been offered in print. This book is also not about Disaster Recovery s best practice and standards details. Instead it introduces everything you want to know to be successful with Disaster Recovery.

13 13 Bank Disaster Recovery Planning Goes Beyond the Usual Banks are among the earliest industries to adapt the features brought about by the birth of information technology. Banks were among the frontline runners who jumped right into whatever information technology promises to offer And as catastrophes are inevitable and unpredictable, bank disaster recovery planning are highly focused on by the said industry. After all, it is money and hard-earned cash which are at stake in these institutions, from individuals alone up to big shot corporations. It seems that even the government has seen how sensitive banks can be and how vulnerable they can become amidst the face of emergency. Hence, the federal government mandated in 1983 that banks disaster recovery planning must be implemented and maintained in each and every financial industry. When it comes to bank disaster recovery planning, the proactive approach is of high value. Planning is definitely on the critical side. The primary objective of bank disaster recovery planning is not to salvage anything from the emergency situation but rather, to actually prevent any unwanted emergencies from hampering operations. This also brought about by the fact that when calamities occur, banks become a hot spot for people who are hit with panic and with an immediate need to check on their resources. In addition, a bank disaster recovery planning puts all people first out of danger. The customers and employees are both very important to save. Without customers, there will be no more business for these banks and without their valued employees, operations will likewise become paralyzed.

14 14 And of course, recovery of data center is not only limited within the confines of the particular branch or department. The whole bank s corporation takes part in the recovery process.

15 15 The Disaster Recovery Journal - Providing Solutions to Ensure Business Continuity Do you have any questions on how you can implement business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) solutions to your organization? The answers are just within your reach because there are a lot of sites that offer suggestions and provide updates as far as BC/DR matters are concerned. Aside from consulting an expert when it comes to BC/DR processes, these web sites are jampacked with tons of information that you can apply to your own business. One of these web sites is the disaster recovery journal. This site offers comprehensive discussions about the latest trends about BC/DR processes and how to successfully put these solutions into practice. The Disaster Recovery Journal is actually a magazine that it has about 60,000 subscribers to date with more than a 100 pages in size. The Disaster Recovery Journal is the first publication that is solely focused on disaster recovery and business continuity. Founded in 1987, its first issue contains 22 pages and was only distributed to about 3,000 readers. The man behind the journal is Richard L. Arnold, who is still acts as the president of the Disaster Recovery Journal. He also happens to be a co-founder of a nonprofit organization named Disaster Recovery Institute in This institution offers certification and awareness of the importance of disaster recovery in the business industry today. To gain more knowledge and learn the different best practices in the field of disaster recovery and business continuity, the Disaster Recovery Journal also sponsors two conferences held

16 16 annually since September With over 3,000 disaster recovery professionals who participated, this only goes to show how critical disaster recovery is to the business.

17 17 Establishing Backup Disaster Recovery Sites for Business Continuity Why do you think that printers, photocopying machines, scanners, diskettes, CDs and DVDs were developed in this day and age? All of these have only one thing in common backup. Producing a backup copy is vital, either soft or hard, that you still can access or read the information you need if in case the original copy is stolen, lost or got damaged. This concept is the same when dealing large volumes of information that are kept on database servers. There is no such perfect system in this world that even high powered machines are still susceptible to change and may lead to malfunction over time. Plus, also take note of unexpected disasters that may happen. Examples would be fire, floods and earthquakes to name a few. Human errors may also occur, though this may seem most unlikely to happen since proper training can always be given to the users of the system. Another human-imposed activity would be hacking and other nuisance that can cause too much trouble. When worse comes to worst that when such unfortunate events arise and everything is lost and may seem to be unrecoverable, there is only one thing that you can cling on. This would be your database backup server. But then again, a good thing to point though is that the database backup server should be kept on another site or location. This could be outside building premises or perimeters or it could also be inside the business facility but is kept on a more secure room or building. This is to ensure the safety of valuable information that would lead to business continuity as well.

18 18 Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Roles Intertwined Business continuity relies on disaster recovery. In difficult and inevitable times when business continuity is at stake due to hindrances and threats by internal and external forces, a wellplanned disaster recovery process is the answer. Such incidents happen commonly on computer systems as the demand to supply IT solutions to most business operations has been apparent over the past several years. Though there is a high level of reliability compared to using the good old manual way of doing things, still there is a need to have business continuity plan or disaster recovery plan. Such systems have their own boundaries or limitations as well, no matter how advanced or complex they are. There will come a time when certain risks will be presented. Therefore constant maintenance and cautious analysis are needed to support such systems. Here are certain precautionary measures that will help ease the pain of losing vital information for larger and more critical computer systems. First is to develop a well written business continuity plan (BCP) or disaster recovery plan (DRP). These processes are essential in making sure that it will be business as usual amidst of encountering a disruptive event. Second is to properly delegate a team of individuals with specific duties and responsibilities, with an accompanying backup plan to support others in carrying out specific tasks. Highly trainable individuals with a vast understanding on how computer system works are definitely an advantage. And lastly, determine the software systems and hardware devices that are susceptible to replacements when disaster strikes. A backup location for database use should also be identified to ensure business continuity.
