STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 970 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which BCM and IT DR improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 970 standard requirements:
- The goal of a disaster recovery plan is to minimize the costs resulting from losses of, or damages to, the resources or capabilities of your IT facilities. The success of any disaster recovery plan depends a great deal on being able to determine the risks associated with data loss. What is the impact to your business if the data is lost?
- Has your organization ever had to invoke its disaster recovery plan which included the number one critical application to your organization and if so was the recovery time objective met and how long did it take to return to your primary solution?
- How do you ensure work system and workplace preparedness for disasters or emergencies? how does your disaster and emergency preparedness system consider prevention, management, continuity of operations, and recovery?
- Is information security continuity embedded within the business continuity management system, including determination of requirements in adverse situations, procedures and controls, and verification of effectiveness?
- Have you developed disaster activation and notification procedures for a disaster during working and non working hours which answers questions as should the recovery team report to work in the middle of the night?
- Does Business Continuity Management take a holistic business-focused view and is it able to handle the consequences of an increasingly global business/ product eco-system in an increasingly regulated environment?
- Do you have an Infrastructure protection (CIP) plan, a disaster recovery plan (DRP) , an information system contingency plan (ISCP) , a cyber incident response plan, and an occupant emergency plan (OEP)?
- The subject of succession planning in the context of disasters is an unpleasant one: If key managers or employees can not be deployed in a disaster, who will step up and fulfill their responsibilities?
- Motivation. As the team leader for the project, you have several options. First, you should understand the current environment in your company. Are there competing pressures for time and resources?
- Does the organization require detailed Business Recovery Plans for all the organizations business entities, or is the focus on how the IT Disaster Recovery Plans supports the business entities?
