Natural and man-made disasters in the past several years have resulted in millions in damages and losses. Despite this, disaster recovery is often not considered by boards as a priority. This paper will detail the current research on organizational resilience in relation to disaster recovery. It will cover the best practices for IT leaders to prepare for disasters and make their organizations more resilient. It will also show how IT leaders can work to convince their boards to invest in disaster recovery planning and how they can build organizational resilience culture in their organizations through a structured organizational culture change process.
