ITS believes that the cornerstone of a well-developed system is the ability to recover after a contingency or disaster operation. This belief drives all aspects of our solution development and system security.
An information technology disaster recovery plan (IT DRP) and a business continuity plan should be developed in conjunction. This process begins with a business impact assessment (BIA), which assigns priorities and establishes recovery time objectives (RTO) for IT systems.
Technology recovery strategies should be developed to restore hardware, applications, and data in time to meet the recovery needs of the business.
ITS can review and help you develop contingency and/or disaster recovery plans to ensure compliance with best practice guidelines, such as NIST Special Publication 800-34; “Contingency Planning Guide for Information Technology Systems.”
