8. How can online and off-line disaster recovery plans tie together?

In a real emergency, if you dont have an off-line plan in place, it will not matter whether your Web site is back up in 15 minutes or less. If you dont have desks for your employees and a way to access your site, your business will grind to a halt. Companies should have off-line fixes for online problems.

Need a way to get employees back online? Find alternative locations, and distribute passwords and access numbers for use in case of an emergency. When your salespeople depends on CRM applications, make sure those are the first to be brought back online, says Marty Ward, a director at Veritas Software.
