Document Recovery Plan

I am using the Document Wizard to write the Disaster Recovery Plan. Section 11 requires me to specify the archives of the person in which the records of recovery steps implementation (in paper form) are store In my company, we keep all documents and records in electronic form in Sharepoint. The IT Dept documents their technical work procedures using One Note or MS Word. DRP test reports are prepared in MS Word and filed in pdf form

If the Disaster Recovery Plan needs to be used, the assumption is that no IT system will work, therefore the only way to read through the plan and to record which steps are completed is through a paper version of the DR plan. Of course, once the systems are up and running, you can scan the paper copy and keep it in digital format.

This assumption is no longer valid today with the state of technology in IT systems. DR events today are localized rather than system-wide.

Please note that while less frequent, disruptions caused due to failure of system-wide assets still can happen:

  • 9 Mar. 2021 — A fire at a French cloud services firm has disrupted millions of websites
  • 29 Sep. 2022 — Internet access down across Florida areas hit by Hurricane Ian
  • 29 Sep. 2022 — The FCC said that more than half a million Floridians had lost their landline telephone, home internet, cable, or some combination, hit by Hurricane Ian.
  • 26 Apr. 2023 — Google Cloud stopped operating in Paris early on Wednesday morning local time due to "water intrusion"

So, even if your area is not directly hit, a disaster that hits your provider can affect your ability to access documents in your systems.
