A survey published by market analyst Meta Research found that only 60% of Global 2000 companies had a "credible disaster recovery plan that is up-to-date, tested and executable".
The survey said the number is an increase from 50% in 2002 and that "a series of failed recoveries and unmanaged incidents resulting from 11 September and increasing regulatory pressure have focused senior management interest on disaster recovery".
Meta said it expects 80% of Global 2000 IT organisations to re-evaluate their plans.
Gartner recommends that the requirements for disaster recovery should be defined early and might include daily data and system back-ups or more mirroring.
