Overview of the Plan Objectives

SLS is critically dependent on uninterrupted services. Any loss of network resources for an extended period of time could have a severe impact on SLS. This plan will specifically address failures that may occur due to a tornado.

This IT Contingency Plan focuses on various levels of failure, and what to do in the event that a failure occurs. The plan defines four levels of failures and the appropriate response to each. SLS will have written, well documented policies and The IT Department will also maintain current inventory lists, software license information or contact lists, as supporting documentation to this Plan. These documents will be kept onsite, offsite, and in a cloud-based server.

The primary objective of this Contingency Plan is to restore and sustain a minimally acceptable level of service.

Start of Disaster Recovery

Phone Tree

The phone tree will always start with the ERT member who is on-call when the disaster occurs. The ERT member will first contact the CEO, and then the manager for each individual department, which includes the IT department, Human Resources department, Sales department, Payroll department, Accounting department, Warehouse department, and Shipping department.

Temporary Office Space

Should a disaster occur that prevents using any company buildings for an extended period of time the ERT will pursue the immediate leasing and setup of business at an alternate site. The ERT will also authorize the purchase or lease of either temporary office furniture or permanent replacement furniture and associated office supplies.
