SERVPRO's Disaster Recovery Team

No Job Is Too Large

Disasters come in all shapes and sizes. It’s not just catastrophic events such as hurricanes, earthquakes and tornadoes, but also incidents such as cyber-attacks, equipment failures and even terrorism that can be classified as disasters.



The cost of disasters



A survey from disaster recovery service provider Zetta showed that more than half of companies surveyed (54%) had experienced a downtime event that lasted more than eight hours over the past five years. Two-thirds of those surveyed said their businesses would lose more than $20,000 for every day of downtime.

A disaster has happened – now what?

If a disaster has occurred, it's time to start your incident response. Make sure that the incident response team (if it’s different from the disaster recovery planning team) has a copy of the disaster recovery plan.

Incident response involves assessing the situation (knowing what hardware, software, systems were affected by the disaster), recovery of the systems, and follow-up (what worked, what didn’t work, what can be improved).

What's next? Cloud or recovery-as-a-service

Like many other enterprise IT systems that have moved to the cloud, so has disaster recovery. Benefits of the cloud include lower cost, easier deployment and the ability to test plans regularly. However, this could come with increased bandwidth needs or degrade a company’s network performance with more complex systems.
