In most organizations, Disaster Recovery Planning is the quintessential complex, unfamiliar task. Disasters happen so rarely that recovery operations are the opposite of routine. What's more, the myriad interconnected data, application and other resources that must be recovered after a disaster make recovery an exceptionally difficult and error-prone effort. Even if you have never built a Disaster Recovery plan before, you can achieve great results. Just follow the DR Template that Janco has created and you will have a functioning plan before you know it.

All Business Continuity Disaster Recovery Planning efforts need to encompass how employees will communicate, where they will go and how they will keep doing their jobs. The details can vary greatly, depending on the size and scope of a company and the way it does business. For some businesses, issues such as supply chain logistics are most crucial and are focus on the plan. For others, information technology may play a more pivotal role, and the Business Continuity Disaster Recovery Plan may have more of a focus on systems recovery.

But the critical point is that neither element can be ignored, and physical, IT and human resources plans cannot be developed in isolation from each other. (In this regard, Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery Planning have much in common with security convergence.) At its heart, Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery Planning processes are about constant communication.

The Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is a tool that can be used as a Disaster Planning Template for any size of the enterprise. The Disaster Planning Template and supporting material have been updated to be GDPR, CCPA, Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA compliant. The template comes as both a Word document, a static fully indexed PDF document, and as an electronic book in .epub format.

The Disaster Planning and Business Continuity Planning Template include:

  • Disaster Recovery Plan and Business Continuity Template (WORD and PDF)
  • Ransomware guidelines that meet all mandated compliance requirements
  • Business and IT Impact Analysis Questionnaire
  • Work Plan
  • Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Audit Program
  • Pandemic Planning Checklist
  • Vendor Partner DR/BC Questionnaire
  • Full integrated IT Infrastructure Policies
    • Backup and Backup Retention Policy
    • Incident Communication Plan Policy
    • Physical and Virtual (Cloud) Security Policy
    • Social Networking Policy
  • Electronic Forms

Preparation for Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity in light of mandated requirements has two primary parts. The first is putting systems in place to completely protect all financial and other data required to meet the reporting regulations and to archive the data to meet future requests for clarification of those reports. The second is to clearly and expressly document all these procedures so that in the event of a SOX audit, the auditors clearly see that the Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan exists and appropriately protects the data and assets of the enterprise.

The focus of this update addresses pandemic issues raised by the Corona Virus. The plan now has a modular structure that integrates with Janco’s Security, Infrastructure Policies, BIA, Audit programs, Safety Program, and related job descriptions.

The CEO of Janco, M. Victor Janulaitis said, “Most enterprises already have disaster recovery and business continuity plans in place. What is missing in many of those plans is a direct focus on the implication of a pandemic on an international scale.”  He added,” Even if the pandemic is isolated to a single country, the implications of closed supply chains can cause companies to be unable to have the necessary parts and products that depend on overseas manufacturing. With that in mind, the DR/BC template now includes a Pandemic Planning Checklist and a Vendor Partner DB/BC questionnaire.”

This core electronic document is over 160 pages. In addition, there are over 50 pages of additional supporting materials that can be used by companies to update their existing DR/BC plans.  Being modular in nature, Janco’s full plan does not need to be implemented.  Rather components of the DR/BC plan can be extracted and added to existing plans.

The 2020 Edition has detail DR/BC activation procedures as well as twenty-four (24) electronic forms. Several are focused on websites that are informational and e-commerce based.

Janco's Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Template provide clear examples of how to create a DRP/BCP for any organization. It is a model any sized organization can use. It is comprehensive without being wordy or pedantic.  The process created is concise and easily understood by all employees. The template has checklists and examples of what is needed to get systems and networks back in working order quickly.  Janco's work with clients who have suffered closures due to loss of remote manufacturing sources, fires, earthquakes, floods, tornados, hurricanes and other. The template is the blueprint that can be used by any organization.
