This document outlines the steps needed in the creation of a disaster recovery plan (DRP). It details what should normally be included, how it can be structured and more. It can be used as the basis for the production of an entirely new plan or as a checklist to audit against and existing plan.
The report also embraces practical contingency steps. The recommended actions should be carefully considered with respect to the specific function or organization under current review.
Again, the document is not intended to be a panacea. It should certainly help you to ensure that both the plan and contingency arrangements are adequate for your needs, however.
