Disaster recovery planning, while not an entirely new concept, has gained increased attention since the events of September 11th and the formation of the Department of Homeland Security. The topic, however, has not become well rooted in the nonprofit community. Disaster Recovery Planning for Nonprofits is a unique and timely book that is geared specifically towards the nonprofit sector. This text lays the framework for organizations that wish to gain an understanding of current practices and want to form comprehensive disaster recovery plans for themselves. Not only does the book treat the various aspects of planning, it also presents a number of case histories and the practices being used by nonprofits as identified from a 2003 survey. Readers will find the strategies more process oriented rather than technologically based, which will enable executives, managers, and employees of nonprofit organizations to use the text as a springboard in the successful formation of their disaster recovery plans.

... [the book] offers some relevant advice by finding the common denominator among nonprofit agencies as varied as museums, social service agencies, and grant foundations... Robinson's most important point is that all records, whether hard copy or electronic, are part of the heart of any organization, and that contingencies must be made for recovery for business to continue following a disaster like Katrina... According to Robinson, the speed of recovery for nonprofit institutions following a disaster isdirectly linked to the ability to restore these institutional records... Robinson states that nonprofits tend not to be driven by technology and he devotes a fair portion of the book to electronic sources. At first glance, this seems irrelevant, but for less computer savvy nonprofits, the information provides basic information on securing electronic information. Robinson points out that a loss from a breach in cyber-security can be just as damaging as any fire or flood. He mentions that basics such as securing computers, installing firewalls, and limiting the number of personnel who have access to sensitive records, simple measures that should be part of a nonprofit's day-to-day operations to effectively prevent or limit damage done by compromised or stol -- Virginia Bartos, Historic Preservation Program Analyst at the New York State Office of Parks * AASLH History News * ...
