Disaster Recovery: Northeast Ohio Records Storage

Offsite Record Storage is the Solution

What is a Disaster Plan?

A sound Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity Plan is essential to protect the well-being of your organization. Many companies neglect to identify the type and severity of “disasters” that could restrict the ability of your operation to function, and may fully destroy the business facilities and operations. A Disaster Recovery Plan identifies the opportunities for disaster at your particular business and plans ahead of time for ways to mitigate and minimize the impact — and to get back to daily operations when a disaster occurs.

Disaster Life Cycle

There are four phases in a Disaster Life Cycle:

  • Normal Operations:
      The time period before a disaster occurs. During this phase, a Disaster Plan would establish procedures for operating during a disaster, and determine means to mitigate the impact of any disaster.
  • Emergency Response:
      The first few hours immediately following a disaster. During this phase, a Disaster Plan would establish means to ensure life safety and security.
  • Interim Processing:
      The time period when your business needs to re-start and operate under the contingency program of the Disaster Plan.
  • Restoration:
      The time period when your “old” business facility is restored or replaced to allow business to resume in a normal operating procedure.
