Disaster recovery (DR) plan is becoming more and more important amid so many natural calamities we have had around the globe. It’s important for organizations, and even countries, of any size to include DR plan as part of their overall strategy. Information and data  is the most important asset for competitive advantage and if lost will certainly lead to complete downfall.

Other assets can be easily acquired but not information and data. In many situations unlike data acquisition of other assets like building etc. can be as simple moving to a new location.  It takes years to build this asset and can’t be replaced easily. For example consider what can happen if you loose data about your customers -reason for your very existence.
