    Contingency Planning Guide for Federal Information Systems

    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.
