Disaster recovery is the process, policies and procedures related to preparing for recovery or continuation of technology infrastructure critical to an organization after a natural or human-induced disaster.
Disaster recovery planning is a subset of a larger process known as business continuity planning and should include planning for resumption of applications, data, hardware, communications (such as networking) and other IT infrastructure.
A business continuity plan (BCP) includes planning for non-IT related aspects such as key personnel, facilities, crisis communication and reputation protection, and should refer to the disaster recovery plan (DRP) for IT related infrastructure recovery / continuity.
Based in part on Contingency planning within the ITIL framework, the workshop will provide a combination of presentation and interactive activities regarding how to plan for disaster mitigation as well as how to proactively respond to a disaster. Students will learn how and when to declare a disaster, the issues and the pitfalls to be avoided in disaster planning, and how to tie disaster planning and recovery to IT services and business continuity.
