Disaster Recovery Planning & Audit

In order to better prepare clients should disaster strike, the SMP team offers audits and assessments to help guide planning and execution. Examining regulations, best practices and effectiveness, SMP will use audit information to help clients develop maintenance plans to ensure preparedness and incident response.

As FEMA says in its Ready.gov information technology business implementation resources,  “Businesses large and small create and manage large volumes of electronic information or data. Much of that data is important. Some data is vital to the survival and continued operation of the business. The impact of data loss or corruption from hardware failure, human error, hacking or malware could be significant. A plan for data backup and restoration of electronic information is essential.

An information technology disaster recovery plan (IT DRP) should be developed in conjunction with the business continuity plan. Priorities and recovery time objectives for information technology should be developed during the business impact analysis. Technology recovery strategies should be developed to restore hardware, applications and data in time to meet the needs of the business recovery.”
