Disaster Recovery and Restoration
What happens when you have a disaster?

  • The Operations Manager arrives on site with full Personal Protective Clothing (PPE).
  • A Damage Assessment Report is carried out detailing measures to halt and stabilise the damaged caused.
  • In co-ordination with management, the Document SOS Operations Manager will agree a Disaster Recovery Schedule to restore and reinstate essential business data immediately for business resumption. In the case of works of art and books see Historical and Valuable Collections

    • Business data recovery - electronic and paper-based (see Paper Recovery and Restoration),
