Disaster Recovery Plan

Disasters Cause Businesses to Fail Every Day — Don’t Let Yours be the Next Victim

Only resilient businesses survive disasters. And, of all the disasters you have seen, the WORST will be the one that happens to YOUR company.

Business continuity planning identifies mission-critical business functions and enacts policies, processes and procedures to ensure the continuation of these functions during and after unforeseen incidents. Business continuity planning should be supported by Information Technology strategies and plans that meet the requirements of the business for critical technology dependencies.

Proper planning can keep a disruption from becoming a disaster. After all, the value of your company lies in its ability to continue to deliver critical products and services, and produce revenue.

Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery Management and Planning

Firestorm utilizes its unique PREDICT. PLAN. PERFORM.® process in designing business continuity programs and IT Disaster Recovery strategies and plans tailored to each client’s individual situation, industry conditions and needs.
