R: Consider Online Vaulting

Issue: With more and more bandwidth available these days, the telecommunications department may be able to provide an online vaulting solution to address the archival/retrieval problem noted in item Q above. Also known as "point in time" recovery, a properly engineered vaulting system can record the very last stock trade or credit card transaction immediately up to a catastrophic failure. The other end of the online vaulting connection may in fact be your organization’s recovery center. While expensive, tele-vaulting earns you the peace of mind of knowing that all of your data is safely vaulted at the recovery center—and that you won’t have to go and get it.

Action: If appropriate, investigate setting up a tele-vaulting system for your organization. If you choose to implement such a system, your emergency plan should designate the contact persons in your organization and at the service provider, and how the system will be handled in a disaster situation.
