Starting an IT Disaster Recovery (DR) plan from scratch is a daunting prospect, which is why we’ve pulled together some DR templates that you can use as starting point. It’s important to adapt the template to suit the specific needs of your organisation, and your processes and procedures.
Before you start the plan you should have already completed a business continuity impact assessment which will give you the information about risks and recovery gaps including identifying all your Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO), to help you make decisions about what plans to put in place, for what data and systems, and in what timeframe.
