Disaster Recovery

September 4th, 2019

Dorian and another hurricane season is should make you take a fresh look at your preparedness..................

 

Today’s post is written by Ivy Ray, Account Manager at SafeSourcing Inc.

Dorian reminds us that  hurricane season is still here,  meteorologists indicate there  three more potential storms are lined up right behind her.  There are areas that are still in recovery from the last  several seasons.

We can’t fight the forces of nature, but we can be prepared as we enter the hurricane season.  Safety is the initial concern during a weather disaster, but the residual damages can be far reaching. Whether the damages are resulting from hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, tornadoes, or blizzards, it could greatly affect business operations.   An event that disrupts your business could actually put you out of business if you don’t have a plan in place. Your organization may not be directly affected by such an event, but your key suppliers and vendors could be.

A disaster recovery plan is essential to keeping your organization running in the case of a natural disaster. It is a good idea to utilize the National Weather Service’s national preparedness calendar as a guide for year-round reminders to identify potential disasters and review your organization’s disaster recovery plan.

Some questions that an organization should keep in mind are:

  • How will your data be affected?
  • Do you have remote systems in place?
  • Do you have backup vendors?
  • Is there a secure alternate operations site?

Disaster recovery involves a set of policies, tools and procedures to enable the recovery or continuation of vital technology infrastructure and systems following a natural or human-induced disaster.  It’s not enough to have the procedures in place; you need to know what’s in the plans to be able to execute them when the time comes.  Have a plan and be ready for action, but most of all be safe!

  2. Thanks for the new things you have revealed in your post. One thing I’d prefer to touch upon is that FSBO relationships are built after a while. By presenting yourself to owners the first saturday and sunday their FSBO is actually announced, prior to the masses start off calling on Monday, you develop a good link. By mailing them tools, educational supplies, free reports, and forms, you become a good ally. By taking a personal fascination with them plus their predicament, you make a solid relationship that, in many cases, pays off once the owners opt with a real estate agent they know and trust — preferably you.
