Back Up and Preventive Strategies
All organizations should prepare for possible emergency situations, and should consider what type of back-up and preventive strategies would be appropriate for each aspect of their activities.

The complexity, and related cost, of back-up procedures and systems may well depend upon the identified speed with which systems or business processes need to be restored. This naturally should be studied in advance.

The following broad areas should certainly be considered as part of this:

    Alternative business process handing

    IT Systems back-up and recovery

    Premises and essential equipment back-up and recovery

    Customer service back-up and recovery

    Administration and operations back-up and recovery

    Information and documentation back-up and recovery

    Insurance Coverage

Within each of these appropriate effort should be expended to ensure that the recovery capability is commensurate with need.
