Cloud Outsourcing, Disaster Recovery, and Security Bundle

  • ID: 5305154
  • Report
  • March 2021
  • Region: Global
  • Janco Associates, Inc

The Cloud Outsourcing, Disaster Recovery, and Security Bundle includes in editable Microsoft WORD and PDF formats:

  • How to Guide for Cloud Processing and Outsourcing includes job descriptions for Manager Cloud applications, Cloud Computing Architect, sample contract, service level agreement, ISO 27001 - 27002 - 27031 security audit checklist, Business and IT Impact Questionnaire and much more.
  • Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) can be used in whole or in part to establish defined responsibilities, actions and procedures to recover the computer, communication and network environment in the event of an unexpected and unscheduled interruption. The template is IS0 27000 (27031) Series, COBIT, Sarbanes Oxley, PCI-DSS, and HIPAA compliant.
  • Security Manual Template - (ISO CobiT SOX HIPAA Compliant) includes the Business Impact questionnaire and a Threat and Vulnerability Assessment Form (PDF and Excel). It is a complete Security Manual and can be used in whole or in part to comply with Sarbanes Oxley, define responsibilities, actions and procedures to manage the security of your computer, communication, Internet and network environment.

The CEO of Janco, M. Victor Janulaitis said, “IT managers have eagerly implemented cloud applications to reap its many benefits including lower hardware, infrastructure, and energy costs.  Now the focus is on having DR/BC Plans that utilize cloud processing as a top priority.”  He added, “The recent storms in Texas have shown many CIOs that DR/BC at a time when working from home is the norm, processing plans need to be more resilient. With the 2021 editions of our Cloud, DR/BC, and Security Templates we have addressed those needs directly.”

These core documents are delivered electronically along with specific infrastructure procedures, job descriptions and electronic forms. In addition, there are over 200 pages of additional supporting materials that can be used by companies to update their existing DR/BC plans and Security protocols.  Being modular in nature, Janco’s full bundle does not need to be implemented.  Rather components of the How to Cloud Guide, DR/BC, and Security Templates can be extracted and added to existing infrastructure and plans.

The 2021 Edition has detail DR/BC activation procedures and implementation work plans. The bundle of three templates provides clear examples of how to get something done quickly and efficiently given the needs of today’s complex operating environments. Any sized organization can benefit from this tool. It is comprehensive and the processes created are concise and easily implemented. There are checklists and examples of what is needed to get systems and networks working quickly.
