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).



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



· 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.
