Disaster Recovery Manyal Disaster Recovery Manual

The Disaster Recovery Business Continuity Manual is what over 3,000 enterprise world wide have chosen as their standard.

ISO 27000, SOX,
PCI-DSS & HIPAA Compliant

The Standard for Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity

The Disaster Recovery Manual (DRP) can be used as a Disaster Planning template for any size of enterprise. The Disaster Recovery template and supporting material have been updated to be Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA compliant. The Disaster Planning Template comes as both a Word document and a static fully indexed PDF document and includes:

  • Disaster Recovery Manual and Business Continuity Template
  • Business and IT Impact Analysis Questionnaire
  • Work Plan
  • Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity Audit Program
  • Pandemic Planning Checklist

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.
