The tasks involved in critical system recovery need to be documented in a disaster recovery plan that includes the hardware and software required for a successful recovery. This plan needs to be kept current and reflect changes made to the computing environment.
Offsite storage of backups should be located in a site physically removed from the systems being backed up. This ensures data availability in the event of a disaster that causes damage to the original site. In addition, periodic tests should be scheduled to validate the disaster recovery plan and ensure that critical systems can be recovered in a timely and successful manner. Changes to the plan should be made based on the results of these tests.
