Providing training and documentation

Applies To: Forefront Client Security

Ensure that administrators, operators, and support staff within your organization have access to various training opportunities and documentation regarding disaster recovery issues.

If one or more of your servers experiences problems, the subsequent downtime can be costly. However, if you invest in good training courses and up-to-date technical manuals for your server administrators, operators, and support staff, your organization will be prepared, and downtime will decrease.

You can also perform occasional disaster recovery simulations in separate, non-production domains. These simulations familiarize administrators, operators, and support staff with recovery procedures, as well as indicate any deficiencies in your backup and restore strategies. Update your documentation with any new procedures or practices that you develop during these simulations.
