Package 9: Disaster Emergency Mode Operations Plan Template w/ Examples

The Emergency Mode Operation Plan requires businesses  to develop, maintain, test, and audit a complete restoration process at a secondary location (off campus data center) in the event of loss of data due to fire, vandalism, natural disaster, or system failure. Emergency mode operation plan for business continuity focuses upon the continuous availability of services required by our customers during disaster, rather than the methods or technologies used to deliver those services.
