Resuming Practice

To resume practice as quickly as possible, you need to identify what your critical services, systems, and data are. You also need to have considered how long you could reasonably be without those services, systems, and data.

Ask yourself:

  • – What tools are essential to your business?
  • – What software do you need to access to run your business?
  • – What do you need to be able to do your banking and process payments?

More specifically, these questions involve considering how you back up your data, what processes you can automate and/or outsource, and what tangible steps you will need to take to recover specific assets and data so that you can get back to serving your clients as quickly as possible.

We’ll discuss data storage in more detail later in this module under Technology Issues.
