IT Disaster Planning & Business Continuity
This is a new forum to discuss what I consider to be a rather ignored aspect of IT security.
Ask yourself: "what would happen if we lost our computing facility?"
You know, a hurricane, typhoon, flood, fire, and so on. It doesn't really matter what sector you are in: school/college, .gov, .mil, .com, .net................
As I have always seen things there are two facets to this:
1. Recovering from an IT specific disaster.
2. Business (organisational) continuity in the face of of a more global disaster.
So, I thought I would post a poll to see what sort of level of penetration and awareness these concepts have.
What I am interested in is basically:
1. Do you have an IT disaster recovery plan?
2. Do you have a global Business Continuity plan?
3. Are they formally documented and disseminated?
4. How often do you test it?
5. Does it involve all areas/departments of your organisation?
6. Has everyone been trained, and do they know what to do?
7. Does it have a budget and contingency reserve fund?
This is a new discussion forum, where I hope that we can share ideas and experiences; so please be patient (and contributive ) whilst it takes shape.
EDIT: Multiple choices are allowed in the above poll
Please note, I have voted for two options because I have multiple clients, some of whom cannot have a global policy........ if your hotel or shop burns down, you cannot expect to have alternative facilities on tap?

If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
