The DRP Maturity Scorecard assesses your current status on two levels:
- Is your DRP adequate? An adequate DRP means that you have the basic requirements in place to pass a DRP audit and to execute recovery. For example, you have a DR site, documented recovery procedures, and assigned roles & responsibilities.
- Is your DRP effective? You have an effective DRP if, in addition to basic requirements, you also have good DRP management practices in place that ensure consistent and reliable DR procedures that stay aligned with business needs. This includes an annual review of your BIA, updating recovery procedures as your environment changes, and executing more comprehensive DR testing.
Before pursuing effective maturity, make sure that your current DRP is meeting adequacy standards. The scorecard is organized into the following sections:
- Core requirements
- Industry requirements
- DRP maturity dashboard
- Status and recommendation
