IT Continuity Plan Creation
The purpose of this section is to assist you in creating the basis of the actual DRP document itself.
Armed with the results of your business impact analysis and risk assessments, you are now ready for IT Continuity Plan Creation, which is comprised of four distinct steps:
- Set project scope.
- Create recovery objectives.
- Document the DRP.
- Communicate the plan.
Once complete, the plan should include all appropriate actions that must be taken if the DRP is ever invoked. After the plan has been created, it is very important to revisit and revise it at least annually.
