Flowcharts provide a quick and concise view, which is ideal for disaster scenarios where pressure is high and rapid upward communication is critical. Flowcharts can also effectively capture a high-level view of day-to-day Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
For experienced staff, a high-level reminder of process flows or key steps is sufficient. Where more details are required, include links to supporting documentation (e.g. checklists, vendor documentation, other flowcharts, etc.).
Use the Example DRP Flowchart and SOPs to guide creation of an incident response plan with links to supporting documents where necessary.
