A Blueprint for Recovery
A Disaster Recovery Plan (DR Plan) is a detailed IT document that provides a blueprint for recovering from common IT-based business disruptions such as:
Ransomware or Other Cyberattacks
Building Accessibility or Power Disruption
Whether you are managing your DR plan internally or are entrusting your plan to a managed service provider, the document must contain detailed, accurate and up-to-date information about the IT operations of your organization. The DR Plan must present that information in a clear and coherent format that is easily consumable and – most importantly – actionable during an actual emergency. Your employees or service provider must be able to follow the document and react rapidly so that availability can be restored per the company’s established service level requirements.
NORSTAR and Evolve IP designed this template to help our Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) clients – both infrastructure only clients and those leveraging our managed DRaaS services — with the process of capturing and organizing the critical information needed to ensure that IT operations are in a position to survive when a disruption occurs.
This template is meant as a guide only. You should review it carefully to determine whether it appropriately fits your needs. If desired, our services team can guide you through the process to customize the template or create a comprehensive DR plan that best meets your own requirements and goals.
