1. I always keep a printed copy of all email and cellphone contacts that
I normally would have access to online.
2. Critical is contacting your users. Normally your company has its
mailing list but that is now down. You could set up a new list via
Google groups or Yahoogroups or even your own Mailman on a VPS, but
what about the list of users? Always keep an updated exported list of
your users on a DoK so you can rebuild later.
3. Website: as above, keep a duplicate copy of your basic HTML pages on
some DoK that you can take with you. Have the user+pswd to your
registrar so you can repoint your DNS to some new site you now setup up
with the new updated info about your downtime.
