Most organizations will immediately recognize the risks associated with the absence of a disaster recovery plan. Knowing that having a full DR plan in place and tested may be more than a year in the future, many organizations will have a strong desire to have something in place while waiting for the full DR plan to be completed.
Often the something that is needed is an interim DR plan. This is a plan that can be created quickly and with minimal effort. It will not, of course, be as comprehensive as a full DR plan. It is rather like tossing a tow rope in the back of a car, knowing that major engine work is needed.
