Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Business continuity is a responsibility of the business groups.  IT disaster recovery, including data recovery, is a shared responsibility among business groups, the County Technology Office, and IT outsourced vendor(s).

 

Rationale:

The County’s business groups, technology office and outsourced vendor(s) will collaborate and plan to ensure minimal disruption to business operations.

 

Implications:

· The allocation of resources to business continuity shall be determined by the impact of service disruption, the cost of service availability protection and the cost of service restoration.

· Business Continuity Plans maintained by the business groups will serve as inputs to the IT disaster recovery approach and plan.

· Any data that is needed for mission critical operations must be backed up using a backup/restore solution consistent with the Enterprise Architecture.
