I was charged with developing a "disaster recovery" plan for the administrative
areas of the University. This plan
did NOT cover the actual evacuation plans nor the computer center plans. What
it did cover were the steps
necessary to get the business functions running once again. The plans were
titled "Business Continuation Plans."
If you are interested, let me know and I will try to put together an outline.
Also check into the Association of Contingency Planners. This is a national
organization that shares all types of
information regarding all types of contingency and business continuation plans.
