Summary : This is not your Grandpa's Disaster Recovery (DR) program. Describing the successful evolution of a bottom-up, community-driven Disaster Recovery program in a start-up culture. Includes an introduction to the dark arts of tabletop exercises, datacenter failovers, incident readiness, internal communication and publicity, improving engagement, shifting left in DR, and more. Attend this talk if you want to boot up your own DR program or to see if there's anything worth stealing from a Galaxy Far, Far Away. (Spoiler: this is working for other programs too, not just DR.)
