Disaster Recovery is an integral element of any Business Continuity Plan (BCP). It is as important as the rest of the elements comprising a BCP.
A Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) offers a range of benefits to an organization, when things go wrong:
1. It provides a sense of security and reduces risk associated stress 2. It facilitates and minimizes decision making during a disaster and its aftermath 3. It provides reliability of operational systems 4. It reduces liabilities from data or infrastructure losses 5. Reduces the cost of recovery 6. Due diligence.

Disaster Recovery can be a complex operation, but when it is well planned and rehearsed, then it is bound to save you money, time and hardship.
Some of the most important plans of the DRP are the risk assessment (something often overlooked) and the management's willingness to budget for planning, for backups and for training everybody on how they can contribute to minimize loss and how to easily recover their assets, during a disaster.
The Army is usually the only organization in any given country that is more prepared than anyone when it comes to disaster recovery. This is not only because of resources; it is mainly because of continuing planning, training and rehearsing.
