Appendix F IT Recovery Checklists
The tasks needed to recover IT systems are probably quite familiar to you, but they should be delineated within your BC/DR plan. Each subteam should have a clear set of guidelines and procedures for how and when they will perform their work. Be sure to note dependencies within the checklist so that teams don’t work at cross-purposes. You can add items to the checklist as checkpoints for these purposes, much like milestones are used in project plans.
We’ve included items related to recovering office work space and business operations in this section because they are intertwined with IT recovery efforts. You can reorganize these checklists to suit your approach to BC/DR.
