Disaster Recovery Plans: Design, Implementation and Maintenance Using the ITIL Framework
Wilson C Room
The only good disaster recovery plan is the one that actually works when you need it. How do you ensure readiness? How do you know that your plan is aligned with the business objectives of your company? Are you having trouble getting buy-in from management to fund your design? How do you prevent both your disaster plan and design from being out of date just weeks after implementation? This tutorial will provide a step-by-step framework for implementing a DR project through the ITIL Lifecycle approach to IT Service Continuity Management. I will demonstrate how to create a process for ongoing management of your disaster recovery capabilities and to ensure that you are proactively improving your plan and design.
