Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP)

Hi everyone,

I need to help a client develop a BCP and a DRP. I remember from my CISSP studies quite a lot about these two things, but I am afraid I will miss some key tasks...

So do you guys know about some checklists or guidelines?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP)

Hi  H1t M0nk3y,

First thing first. Identify assets, carry out risk assessment then carryout Business Impact Analysis (BIA). Through process analysis measure Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO).

Then prepare strategies for DR and BCP.

I hope i am on the track.

HTH.

Yes, that's the kind of things I am looking for!

But I would like to get a more detail checklist, for example on how to carry out a Business Impact Analysis (BIA)...

Yeah, I have a small checklist, collected from a friend.

As you know it is an iterative process and you will visit this document many time while preparing DRP/BCP Strategy.

Thanks again vekarman!
