January 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MST

effective disaster recovery plan


After you have created an effective recovery strategy, the ability to execute that strategy is of primary importance. Along with training and testing, the documentation and procedures required to perform a practical and usable technical recovery are essential. You may not think it is necessary, but a Disaster Recovery plan that facilitates an actual recovery (and not just some documentation no one is likely to use) is a major component to overall recovery capability and cannot be ignored.

“At MHA, we are dedicated to helping our clients develop strategies, plans, and training that will assure the continued availability of services in the event of an unplanned outage,” said Richard Long. “I am looking forward to this opportunity to share some advice and practical solutions to developing DR plans that actually work.”

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Why you need Disaster or Technical Recovery Plans
  • Necessary content and components of the plans
  • Strategies and techniques to develop the plans
  • Integration between Disaster or Technical Recovery Plans and Business Recovery Plans
