There are many facets of contingency planning but the two main focal points are business continuity and disaster recovery. Simply backing everything up and duplicating your entire current environment can be a method for ensuring you’ve protected everything however, it is a bit unrealistic and costly. Once critical data is identified, it is vital that it is backed up on a regular schedule (i.e. From your business impact analysis you will also determine what your timing objectives are for each application.
If you are unable to return to your main office due to a building disruption, you must ensure that you can continue work from an alternate location. Ensure that detailed recovery procedures for each of your critical systems and applications are clearly documented, and tested regularly. Your information technology team is a vital part of your organization and your planning and recovery efforts. Once all your recovery requirements are identified and your backups are in place, and once all your recovery procedures are documented and tested this does not mean that you are now done. In an effort to reduce time and costs, occasionally a decision may be made to skip over certain departments and only include the high profile departments.
Your business continuity planning will include procedures for all departments including your IT department.

What we cultivate and nurture will determine our result and experience.  This applies to building a preparedness program and to to all aspects of our encounter with life and our perception of reality.  Do we choose freedom and being responsible for our choices and the rewards that follow, or are we going to thoughtlessly and recklessly react without engaging in a critical thinking process? I have decided to post this article on the barriers to critical thinking, which I use in teaching, as the 3rd in a series of posts dealing with the psychological, emotional and spiritual components of emergency and disaster preparedness planning. Your responsibility as a critical thinker is to be aware of the barriers, acknowledge the challenges they present, and overcome them to the best of your ability. In general – the older one becomes the more well-established and rooted these barriers are in the thought process, and the harder it is to overcome them – they become part of you like a scar.  It is suggested to triumph over them as soon as possible. Do not be discouraged by the enormity of the task of reflecting upon, acknowledging, and overcoming these barriers.  Have confidence that you will recognize the hold these barriers have on your thought process, and I encourage you to be committed to achieving the obtainable rewards awaiting you when you have accomplished the goal of prevailing over these barriers one by one. In the pursuit of the embodiment of critical thinking skills always be mindful of the value and necessity of honesty, wisdom, discernment, and the need to distinguish the truth from the lie.  We live in an unprecedented time of media, institutional, educational, and political self-interest that will not hesitate to use any means possible to achieve its objectives including deceptive indoctrination techniques, propaganda, deceitfulness, fallacious argumentation, and fraud.

In order to properly plan you must first understand what the vital components of your technology are. At a minimum you should be able to access the technology that you’ve identified as your critical requirements.
No matter how much backup is in place, clear instructions must be available on how to recover them.
Technology is an area that is constantly changing, evolving, improving, and therefore must always be maintained. Minimizing your spending when it comes to your recovery efforts puts your organization at a greater risk. Identification of your critical requirements for each department will be the basis for your disaster recovery planning efforts. Desere is a Master Business Continuity Planner (MBCP) and a veteran in the industry with over twenty years' experience. Business continuity planning focuses on your business functions and the processes that run your business, where as disaster recovery planning focuses on the technology that supports the business. Working remotely from home needs to be a consideration, or working from an alternate recovery site. You can not ensure that your regular staff will be available, therefore you need to ensure that detailed recovery procedures are available so that other staff members would be able to use the instructions to recover your critical systems.
However, it should not be up to their discretion to identify and decide what should or should not be recovered, protected and planned for. Not annually, but daily tracking and documenting of changes that impact your recovery plans is essential. The lack of doing a full Business Impact Analysis on all departments could impact your planning and worse of all jeopardize your recovery. In the long run you may find that you have cost your company more money by not being properly prepared.

Those are the procedures for how to manage your IT department, and would only include systems and applications that your IT department uses.
Documentation of recovery procedures, backing up data off site, and regular testing will ensure the validity of your plans. Whether they result from natural disaster or a loss of data, they can wreak havoc in an otherwise seamless operating system. Disaster recovery planning includes items such as data backups, critical applications, servers, infrastructure, and networks.
By conducting a full business impact analysis of each of your departments you will get a complete picture as to what your business truly needs to stay up and running. Information technology will certainly be instrumental in ensuring what your business have identified is prioritized, backed up accordingly, documented, tested, and maintained.
Utilize change control management on all of your critical systems, to ensure that any changes made in production to a critical function, system, or application are also included in your disaster recovery plans. It’s usually better to ensure that all your bases have been covered, and leave no stones left unturned. Disaster recovery planning can be very costly because it includes technology, infrastructure, data storage.
Your information technology department is the key to your disaster recovery plan, but they should not be the drivers. Recovering your critical business functions would not be possible without the proper technology in place, and this requires disaster recovery planning. This is also essential to help you budget properly and identify where your recovery dollars must be prioritized. Backing up your data and keeping it in the same location as your current production data is useless. A Recovery Point Objective (RPO) indicates at what point your data should be recovered at (i.e. It is up to the business to decide what they really need to keep your business up and running. A disaster recovery plan should include all critical technology for your entire organization and should be a plan unto itself.
Maintaining your disaster recovery plan on a daily basis is critical to your organizations recovery.
A good contingency plan will not only allow a you to successfully react to any problems, but it will also allow you to be proactive and minimize a percentage of potential loss before it even occurs. Once your critical requirements have been identified, proper budgeting needs to be included on an annual basis to ensure the plan is maintained. Storms and holidays are events that can often be anticipated, but other crises such as data loss and personnel problems give no warning.
These timings will indicate where your recovery priorities lie and will determine which applications should be recovered first and how quickly. An important component of the risk assessment process is also listing and addressing all critical business operations, as this lays the framework for developing a more action-based plan. All employees should be debriefed on what must be done in the event of a crisis, as limiting the knowledge to select staff will make implementing necessary steps incredibly difficult.
