Welcome to The Disaster Recovery Planning Forum

The Disaster Recovery Community Planning Forum is intended to provide a range of information and background to assist those with responsibility for business continuity and disaster recovery planning. It covers all aspects, from management and planning, to data recovery and emergency response issues.

This interactive web portal is relatively new, and is still under constant development, but the volume of content and information will continue to expand and increase as the project evolves.

We hope that you will find it to be both intersting and valuable, and equally importantly, that you will participate, to ensure that it becomes a true 'peer to peer' experience. You are welcome to use our forums, post papers, vote in surveys or even submit content in the form of new FAQs.

DRP FAQ - Part 1
News on the status of FAQ additions
1) What is disaster recovery planning?
Disaster recovery planning is effectively the preparation of those steps that will be necessary for recovery from a disaster or other crisis situation

2) How important is the disaster recovery plan?
The plan itself is the core of the whole planning exercise, and is of critical importance. It is vital, therefore, that if you are to manage an incident successfully, the plan itself must be of the highest quality and be up to date.

3) How do I create a disaster recovery plan?
There are number of options, ranging from consultancy to software. However, probably the most common these days is the use of disaster recovery plan templates. This helps keep the exercise relatively simple.

4) Where does an SLA fit into this picture?
The service level agreement is basically a formal undertaking between yourself and the service provider. It is a mechanism used to ensure that you can have confidence in the supply of critical services and/or products.

5) How do I know the plan will work?
Testing is as important as any other aspect of business continuity and disaster recovery planning. Paper testing and scheduled practical tests should both be undertaken.

6) What is Data Recovery?
This is process of salvaging data from damaged, failed, wrecked or inaccessible storage media when it cannot be accessed through normal means.

7) What is Risk Analysis?
This is a method used to identify and assess factors that may jeopardize the smooth operation of a function or business. A range of different methodologies/approaches exist, broadly categorized as 'quantitive' and 'qualitative'.

8) What is Business Impact Analysis?
BIA is a method used to assess the financial or other loss sustained when Information System or business function is impaired or unavailable.

9) What is BS25999?
This is the new standard for Business Continuity Management.

10) What are the 7 P's?
It is sometimes suggested that successful BCM is built upon: People, Program, Processes, Performance, Providers, Premises and Profile.
