Written answers (Question to Transport)

My Department has an ICT disaster recovery plan and appropriate disaster recovery sites to ensure that, in the event of any incident that impacts our ICT systems, ICT services required to operate my Department continue with minimal disruption.

A Department-wide business continuity plan is currently in development. The objective of the plan will be to enable my Department to effectively respond to an emergency or disruptive incident, ensuring that key functions, both ICT and otherwise, can be maintained at an acceptable level, or are restored to such a level as quickly as possible.
