10 Tough Disaster Recovery Questions for CIOs

By Dennis McCafferty  |  Posted 02-03-2014 Email

What's worse than having a CEO and board of directors grill you about your disaster recovery plan? Well, not having a good answer for every question, especially if they're asking after the worst has happened, as opposed to before. Given that the future of your organization (not to mention your career) is at stake here, we're presenting the following 10 questions that every CIO should be ready to address about the company disaster plan. Compiled by Janco Associates, the questions cover everything from data and application protection to business continuity to recovery-plan personnel to testing procedures. It's all part of Janco's e-book, Disaster Recovery Business Continuity Template, which is available here. Among other objectives, the e-book explains how to recover both the physical network and applications during a disaster, while minimizing dollar loss, operational interference and other frequent, business-draining outcomes of these events. With thorough, advance preparation to cover every single base, you'll find that instead of planning for the worst, you'll be ready for it. For more about Janco's list of 10 questions, click here.
