Examples; 10 of the 836 standard requirements:
- Does the organization require detailed Business Recovery Plans for all the organizations business entities, or whether the focus is on how the IT Disaster Recovery Plans supports the business entities?
- 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?
- Should you have separate wide area connectivity for your backup site that is sheltered from normal network traffic, either as a separate packet connection, or as a circuit like connection?
- Will the organization consider allowing a vendor to self-insure for all or part of such risks provided the vendor produces evidence of the financial ability to self-insure such risks?
- Do you ensure that backups are made regularly of the affected electronic records so that reasonably up-to-date copies can be retrieved quickly to support a restored system?
- Will the team manager determine the nature and extent of the disaster for example, is an application in trouble, is a processor down, or is the network down?
- Will your plan provide you enough guidance during the stressful aftermath of an emergency, disaster, or disruption to get the business up and running again?
- Consider what steps can be taken to minimize the likelihood of the identified function failing. How can the underlying systems be made more redundant?
- You probably dont want to activate the alternate site if you have a minor or even an intermediate disruption, so how do you define when you should?
- After daily processing is complete, how long is backup media kept at the processing site before it is taken offsite (or transmitted offsite)?
