A Disaster Recovery Audit is a review of the organization’s information systems, procedures and management. The evaluation of this information determines if the existing DR plan is protecting assets, maintaining data integrity, and operating in line with the organization’s goals and objectives.
Disaster Recovery Audits focus on determining risks that are relevant to technology assets and aligning procedure to reduce or mitigate these risks. By implementing process, the impact of risks can be minimized, but process, no matter how comprehensive, cannot eliminate all risks.
The key to successful disaster recovery is to have a plan well before disaster ever strikes. Auditing the plan ensures that it addresses people, process and technology issues so the plan is likely to work in the face of a real emergency.
