What is BIZOPS-5 Disaster Recovery Plan Control?

The BIZOPS-5 Disaster Recovery Plan talks about any organization that is prone to unforeseen events, and to remain resilient during such events requires some organization and preparation. In writing a disaster recovery plan (DRP) document, the exercise of “what if” scenarios must be contemplated, and resolution solutions must be anticipated and documented.

There are many methodologies out there. However, there are no formal requirements other than a logical step-by-step plan for the resolution of any issues that an unforeseen event would cause. TrustCloud provides an out-of-the-box policy that can be augmented to meet an organization’s specific needs.
