Written answers (Question to Business)

My Department has a business continuity plan which identifies actions to be taken to mitigate the loss of significant resources such as buildings or systems.  My Department also maintains disaster recovery procedures and protocols for computer systems to mitigate the loss of significant systems.  There are two separate data centres for Departmental systems, located in separate Departmental buildings, and data and systems are replicated between the two locations.  In the event of issues with one site, services can be switched over to the second site.
