Abstract

Disasters that affect medical data may come in many forms, but those that can harm sensitive computer information are not necessarily dramatic. Even so, the problems that can arise if data is lost can be severe. This article discusses the issues of how to recover data once an information technology disaster has occurred and how to prevent or guard against disaster. Not all disasters are preventable, but many are. Even if a disaster is not preventable, certain practices in advance can ease the process of recovery.
