Disaster Recovery Plan Template
A Disaster Recovery Plan (DR Plan) is a detailed IT document that provides a blueprint for recovering from common IT-based business disruptions such as:
- Ransomware or Other Cyberattacks
- Environmental Catastrophes
- Building Accessibility or Power Disruption
- Employee Errors
- Hardware Failures
- Software Failures
Evolve IP designed this template to help our Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) clients – both infrastructure only clients and those leveraging our managed DRaaS services — with the process of capturing and organizing the critical information needed to ensure that IT operations are in a position to survive when a disruption occurs.
DO I REALLY NEED DISASTER RECOVERY?
Evolve IP’s recent survey found that one-third of companies have experienced a disaster that affected their business, with the leading cause of incidents and outages being hardware failure / server room issues (47 percent).
93% of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster.1
20% of small to medium businesses will suffer a major disaster causing loss of critical data every 5 years.2
Of those without a DRP, 80% that experience a significant data loss are likely to go out of business within one month.3
54% of organizations spend less than $50,000 annually on DR and BC.4
