According to NIST 800-34:
Information system contingency planning refers to a coordinated strategy involving plans, procedures, and technical measures that enable the recovery of information systems, operations, and data after a disruption. Contingency planning generally includes one or more of the following approaches to restore disrupted services:
- Restoring information systems using alternate equipment;
- Performing some or all of the affected business processes using alternate processing (manual) means (typically acceptable for only short-term disruptions);
- Recovering information systems operations at an alternate location (typically acceptable for only long–term disruptions or those physically impacting the facility); and
- Implementing of appropriate contingency planning controls based on the information system’s security impact level.
By completing this training, your contingency plan team will be able to:
- Optimize their organization contingency operations.
- Identify activities, resources, and procedures needed during prolonged interruptions to critical IT.
- Ensure awareness of contingency roles and responsibilities.
- Ensure coordination and communications among staff.
