Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) Template to achieve HIPAA Security Compliance

This main document contains the non-technical activities that need to be completed in support of Disaster Recovery operations.  The following sections contain contact numbers, contact personnel, activation and notification procedures, an overview of recovery teams, vendor contact information and recovery locations.

The detailed technical recovery procedures for all components are located in the appendix since these recovery plans are modified on a regular basis due to periodic configuration changes of the company’s Technology Environment.  Furthermore, with continual changes to the hardware, network, and operating systems (OS), technical documents such as the detailed individual DR Plans for this environment will be updated on a regular basis to ensure changes in hardware and operating systems are reflected in the technical DR Procedures.
