This seven-step guide offers strategies and techniques that will aid you in federal information system contingency planning.
The NIST "Contingency Planning Guide for Federal Information Systems" provides instructions, recommendations and considerations for federal information system contingency planning. Contingency planning refers to interim measures to recover information system services after a disruption. Interim measures may include relocation of information systems and operations to an alternate site, recovery of information system functions using alternate equipment or performance of information system functions using manual methods. This guide addresses specific contingency planning recommendations for three platform types (client/server, telecommunications and mainframe systems) and provides strategies and techniques common to all systems.
This guide defines a seven-step contingency planning process that an organization may apply to develop and maintain a viable contingency planning program for their information systems.
