- Does the DRP clearly identify a line of succession to assume authority for executing the disaster recovery plan in the event key designated staff is unavailable?
- Has the IT Disaster Recovery plan been integrated with other applicable plans (e.g., Business Continuity or Resumption Plan, Occupant Evaluation Plan, etc.)?
- How do you ensure to link business continuity planning with existing risk management in your organisation; have you forgotten to deal with any risks?
- Are copies of your disaster recovery plan kept at home(s), as well as stored as disaster recovery information (i.e., vital records)?
