This tool provides best practice questions to consider for a company’s disaster recovery plan.
The stages include pre-planning, plan development, plan testing and plan maintenance. Sample questions included in pre-planning stage are: did you follow an industry standard disaster recovery (DR) methodology? Which methodology did you use? Did you perform a Business Impact Assessment (BIA) to prioritize your business processes? Were business process owners consulted during the BIA? Did you perform a risk management review to identify and correct obvious weaknesses? Did you prepare a recovery options list that itemizes recovery options by business process? Did management approve final DR options?
