But with The Disaster Recovery Handbook, you can create a plan to ensure your business will continue and your vital operations, facilities, and assets will be protected. Expect the best. Plan for the worst. Survey the headlines: superstorms, data breaches, pandemics, system failures, and strikes occur regularly...somewhere. If a disaster hits your organization-will you be prepared? With the detailed guidance found in The Disaster Recovery Handbook, your company's survival and the speedy resumption of business is assured. This thoroughly updated third edition provides readers with clear and comprehensive instructions for assessing risk; documenting recovery procedures; assembling a disaster team; testing and debugging every step; protecting material resources; and safeguarding vital records.

Anything can happen, but The Disaster Recovery Handbook helps you plan for every contingency, ensuring your company is responsible, ready, and resilient.
