Gerry Bell, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, wants to prepare people for the Atlantic hurricane season, which officially began June 1. With the possibility of a bad hurricane season looming over the Atlantic and the thought of Hurricane Sandy still fresh on the mind of many on the East Coast, it's only natural to look at emergency preparation and disaster recovery as an important aspect of information technology work. Companies on the whipping end of the hurricane belt know the benefits of putting together a disaster plan. While a disaster plan may take into account all the aspects of your business, there's more to it. There's also the practical implementation. Chances are that you're never going to account for everything that may be lost, but planning for the worst is the best chance a company has when facing a natural disaster.
