From the Paper:

"The possible disasters could be of three types, first being a physical destruction of infrastructure that could be caused at any centre by a natural disaster like cyclones, or a man made disaster like fire -- electrical or other wise, surges, lightening etc. The physical destruction could be also a result of terrorism, or other types of acts. The second is the damage to the storage medium on account of system malfunctions, virus or the problem with the electronic media and the corruption of data, virus and other similar threats. The third could be a hacking or external threat caused by an agent who is malicious. "Carelessness on the part of the employees could also belong to this category. In all such cases the back up must be reliable and be able to be used fast and in the least time.
Again in the system there ought to be consider the possibilities of recovery from a disaster and also preventing a disaster. The disaster that could arise from the causes of malignant action can be avoided by using security and also by updating the virus scan procedures. This type of activity is prevention. However some of the disasters will occur and is out of control. In the events like fire for example insurance of the data is a must and it can save a lot of costs and provide for damages that may ensue."
