DRP Customers

In most organizations, DR is the quintessential complex, unfamiliar task. Disasters happen so rarely that recovery operations are the opposite of routine. What's more the myriad, interconnected data, application and other resources that must be recovered after a disaster make recovery an exceptionally difficult and error-prone effort. Even if you have never built a DR plan before, you can achieve great results. Just follow the DR Template that Janco has created and you will have a functioning plan before you know it.

All Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery plans need to encompass how employees will communicate, where they will go and how they will keep doing their jobs. The details can vary greatly, depending on the size and scope of a company and the way it does business. For some businesses, issues such as supply chain logistics are most crucial and are the focus on the plan. For others, information technology may play a more pivotal role, and the Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery plan may have more of a focus on systems recovery.

But the critical point is that neither element can be ignored, and physical, IT and human resources plans cannot be developed in isolation from each other. (In this regard, Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery has much in common with security convergence. ) At its heart, Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery is about constant communication.

Janco's Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is that tool which can be used as a Disaster Planning template for any size of enterprise. The Template and supporting material have been updated to be Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA compliant. The template comes as both a Word document and a static fully indexed PDF document. The DRP/BCP Template includes:

  • Disaster Recovery Plan and Business Continuity Template (WORD and PDF)
  • Ransomware guidelines that meet all mandated compliance requirements
  • Business and IT Impact Analysis Questionnaire
  • Work Plan
  • Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity Audit Program
  • Pandemic Planning Checklist
  • Incident Communication Plan and Policy

MTO Disaster Timeline

Preparation for Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity in light of SOX has two primary parts. The first is putting systems in place to completely protect all financial and other data required to meet the reporting regulations and to archive the data to meet future requests for clarification of those reports. The second is to clearly and expressly document all these procedures so that in the event of a SOX audit, the auditors clearly see that the DRP exists and will appropriately protect the data.

The Disaster Recovery - Business Continuity Template can be acquired in the following ways:

IT Disaster Recovery Specific Job Descriptions

In order for a disaster recovery process to work it needs the proper organizational infrastructure, trained staff, and tools necessary to implement it. Because this implementation process requires considerable expertise and experience, organizations must carefully consider the costs of developing their in-house skill sets as well as those of purchasing, implementing, and maintaining their own hardware and software in house. They should then compare this expertise and the hardware and software costs to those they could access by going to a third-party managed recovery provider that specializes in providing IT disaster recovery services.

    Tools to create a good crisis communications response available

    Tools to create a good crisis communications response available

    Incident Communication PlanJanco Associates after exploring what good communications after an incident looks like, defined a crisp and robust Incident Communication Policy.

    To survive an incident such as a business interruption, security breach, or a product recall, organizations need more than a successful communication strategy - they need an incident communication plan.

    The overall objectives of a incident communications plan should be established at the outset. The objectives should be agreed upon, well understood, and publicized. For example, will the primary objective of the communications plan be for communications only to employees, and only during a disaster? Or is the intent to advise customers of interruptions to service? Or is it for investors and stockholders? Or regulatory agencies? Or is it some combination of these?
