Disaster Recovery Plan
Disasters are unavoidable within businesses and organizations alike. Disasters not only affect the business and organizational continuity, it will also result in a major modification of the organization’s operational mechanisms (Awasthy, 2009). Businesses now prepare a business continuity plan and a disaster recovery plan because of these reasons so that they may simplify the disaster management when next one occurs. It is highly important for every business to have an effective disaster recovery plan to go to in the event of a disaster (Thejendra, 2008).
