Building an Effective Disaster Recovery Exercise

September 13, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MST


Do you hold regular disaster recovery exercises to heighten team sophistication and maturity? Performing actual recoveries, especially leveraging known weaknesses and gaps, provides appropriate stress-inducing behavior versus a game mentality. Exercises are about simulating a real event and identifying weaknesses and gaps in your technical capability.


In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Who should be involved in the recovery exercise
  • How to plan – but not over plan – the exercise
  • How to determine the appropriate scope for the exercise
  • How to manage the exercise
  • How to perform multiple exercises in a year
  • What you should do with the results
