document. It detailed which drives to restore in which order. Ways to Improve: The number one way that LGHP can improve their restore procedures is to better detail restoration processes. Secondly, the restore plan did not take into account tragic disasters such as the current earthquake situation. If the restoration plan would have taken this type of tragedy as a real consequence, it might not have taken six to eight weeks to restore business functions. Strength #3: Strength Details: Analyze and Discuss Strength #3: LGHP’s backup plans/procedures are about 90% completed which helped in the backup and restore process. LGHP keeps full and differential backups of at least 14 days, if needed. Contributing Factors: Plans Backup and restore plans/procedures. Policies The backup policy was detailed along with how to restore in the case of an disaster. Documents LGHP has clearly defined the backup and restore procedures with in the backup document titled “Backup and Recovery Policy Process Name: EFHG R&D” Positive Consequences: The positive impact this document had on LGHP’s it detailed proper information on backups as well as where they were stored. They stored backups in two separate locations. Ways to Improve: The number one way that LGHP can improve their backup
procedures is to start off-site backup as well as either a hot, cold or warm site backup plan in place. While LGHP does complete proper backups, if the location within the current building would have been destroyed then restore of the backups would not have been possible.
Areas for Improvement of Disaster Response EVALUATION Area for Improvement #1: Area for Improvement Details: Analyze and Discuss Area for Improvement #1: While some documentation was completed for the DRP none of it was fully completed and up to standard. All documents were helpful to some degree, but not what is expected for a full detailed DRP for different circumstances. Contributing Factors: Plans DRP as well as BIA. Policies Proper documentation for a well defined DRP were not in place at the time of the disaster. Completion and corrections need to take place to DRP and BIA. Documents DRP and BIA documents/procedures were not clear, as to what should happen in the event of a natural disaster. This procedure should be updated to include but not limited to fire, tornado, earthquakes as well as other unforeseen tragedies. Consequences: Because of not having complete and up to date procedures, the company took between four to six weeks to recover. If these unforeseen circumstances would have been well documented and procedures in place this could have been avoided.
