Examples; 10 of the 870 standard requirements:

  1. 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?

  2. Have policy priorities affecting key data governance rules and requirements been identified, and has agreement (either a formal agreement or a verbal approval) on priorities been secured from key stakeholders?

  3. Have internal procedural controls been established to manage user data access, including security screenings, training, and confidentiality agreements required for staff with PII access privileges?

  4. Customer centric - reporting - measuring individuals is key to success. does your cloud provider offer an insight into your usage of the platform to help you analyze your teams performance?

  5. Tackle actions and evaluate progress - How will you successfully implement actions to build resilience in your value chain and evaluate and monitor the effect of your actions over time?

  6. Have policies and procedures been established to ensure the continuity of data services in an event of a data breach, loss, or other disaster (this includes a disaster recovery plan)?

  7. Have you looked for organizations that can support you in the implementation of your resilience actions, such as suppliers, other businesses, local authorities, and universities?

  8. Employees are bringing mobile devices to work and accessing sensitive data, with or without permission from IT Security. and are such devices secure enough for your enterprise?

  9. Are you a listed organization, if so ask yourselves this: What potential impact can there be on your organizations equity position when disaster recovery needs to be envoked?

  10. Have you assessed that your resilience actions do not cause harm to local communities or ecosystems and, where relevant, identified ways to minimize any negative impacts?
