Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Maintain a change history of the IT continuity plan. Ensure proper version management of the plan, e.g., through the use of document management systems. Ensure that all distributed copies are the same version.
  2. Involve the business continuity and IT continuity manager(s) in the change management processes to ensure awareness of important changes that would require updates to the IT continuity plans.
  3. Update the IT continuity plan as described by the IT continuity framework. Triggering events for the update of the plan include:
    • Important architecture changes
    • Important business changes
    • Key staff changes or organisation changes
    • Incidents/disasters and the lessons learnt
    • Results from continuity plan tests
