Disaster Recovery

DR Planning and Business Continuity Consultancy ...

Do you have a Disaster Recovery Plan in place?

GA has helped a number of organisations develop a Disaster Recovery Plan or Business Continuity Plan. This process looks at your office, communications, staff and of course IT systems - and can be provided at an affordable cost.

Survey of Types of Business Disaster

  • What would you do if your office was unusable due to fire?
  • How long would you want your business to be out of action? 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week?
  • Where would your staff go?
  • How would customers & suppliers get hold of you?

If you do not have a plan in place then you are unlikely to be anywhere close to your target recovery time – and many businesses go bust when they are unable to trade for a number of days or weeks as a result of fire.

Our Disaster Recovery planning process typically involves 3 days of our time for a business of up to 25 staff. For 25-100 staff this may increase to 5 days of consultancy time. We work with you to develop a pragmatic plan which is proportionate to your budget – and the exercise includes basic disaster recovery testing and a staff awareness session, which we can repeat on an annual basis if required.

Our Services

The trustees of the Orion Farming Group decided that the business had reached such a significant turnover that their Disaster Recovery Plans should be reviewed. GA were appointed and, after an initial meeting with senior management, assessed the IT systems as well as appointing a decision-making unit for the day of a disaster, identifying a potential alternative office for staff should it be required, reviewing other equipment, paper-based systems, phones and other telecommunications.
