    Mappingnbsp;out allnbsp;the preparations necessary fornbsp;an effective disaster recovery plannbsp;and its safeguard—a continuous maintenance program—this guide is aimed atnbsp;IT managersnbsp;of small and medium businesses.nbsp;The opening sectionnbsp;coversnbsp;the initial steps of auditingnbsp;vulnerability, ranking essential IT functions, and reviewing the storage of tape backups, with the following discussion focused on the elements of the plan itself. The plan includes a mission statement, a definition of disaster, the assignment of staff to teams, methods of compensating for human error, and standards for documenting the steps of recovery. The final portion of the guide covers the all-important initial testing of the systemnbsp;as well as thenbsp;proper maintenance thereafter and weighs in on the pros and cons of using outside vendors for recovery systems.

    Richard Dolewskiis a certified systems integration specialist and disaster recovery planner and the vice president of technical and contingency services at Mid-Range, an IBM Premier Business Partner.nbsp;He lives in Toronto, Ontario.
