Disaster Recovery Plan

1 - May I ask, is the Disaster Recovery Plan a good control to start with, and the most important one. Also, it consists of many other controls that would then be covered at the same time?

2 - I suppose our Head Software Developer who also is in charge of Server Maintenance, would that be the person to document these steps.  As it is much more complex than just “copy-paste install backup.

In fact, the Disaster Recovery Plan is one of the last controls to work on. The purpose of the Disaster Recovery Plan is to allow the quick resume of information security and information technology activities in case of a disruption, so you need to understand first which information security controls are in place to start developing your plan.

The person to be involved in the development of a Disaster Recovery Plan will depend on the defined disruptive scenario.

For example, if the disruptive scenario involves only the loss of a server, then your Head Software Developer will be the person to be responsible for the plan. On the other hand, if the disaster involves not only the loss of the server, but also the loss of the server room, or an entire building, then you will need to involve more people, like the facility manager.
