Avoid duplicating all of your recovery procedures and analyses into a massive all-in-one document. Instead, use the DRP Summary Template to concisely outline your current DRP status and capabilities for the auditor, and include links to additional detailed documents where necessary. For a completed version of the DRP Summary document in context with the other core DRP documentation, view Info-Tech's Practical, Right-Sized DRP Case Study.
Specifically, use the DRP Summary Template to summarize your current status in each phase of the Define, Implement, and Maintain framework:
- Define phase: Asset management, business impact analysis, risk management, and considerations for DR duration.
- Implement phase: Disaster recovery procedures, DR awareness and training, DR solution, IT operations during DR to repatriation.
- Maintain phase: DR testing, DR documentation management, DRP change management.
Use this template in conjunction with the project blueprint, Prepare for a DRP Audit.
