Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity Planning and Testing
How it Works
Holocron Cyber employs experienced security consultants to facilitate the delivery of the ISO27001 gap assessment. The methodology involves several phases, as outlined below:
Phase 1: Policy Development
Holocron consultants will conduct a thorough evaluation of the organisation, covering its infrastructure, policies, existing processes, and information security requirements. Upon completion, the consultants will develop a comprehensive DRP and BCP tailored to the needs of the organisation.
Phase 2: Tabletop Exercise
A tabletop exercise is conducted to respond to a potential cyber threat. This typically involves a selection of key stakeholders who participate in a discussion to address the simulated event. Post-exercise, the Holocron consultants will facilitate a debrief workshop to review any outcomes and remediation points.
Phase 3: Crisis Simulation
Holocron consultants work with the organisation to perform a crisis simulation to evaluate the effectiveness of the DRP and BCP. Unlike a full-scale test designed to bring down all systems, the simulation is conducted in a controlled and isolated manner, where each system is tested individually.
Phase 4: (Optional) Review & Maintain
Holocron can optionally be onboarded to annually review and maintain the DRP & BCP to ensure they remain relevant to the organisation’s changing threat landscape and regulatory requirements.
What is a Tabletop Exercise?
A tabletop exercise is a type of emergency preparedness and response simulation that involves a group of stakeholders discussing and planning how they would respond to a hypothetical emergency situation.
This type of exercise is conducted around a table, with participants playing out their roles and explaining the steps they would take in the given scenario. The focus of a tabletop exercise is on communication, coordination, and decision-making, rather than performing physical drills.
What is a Crisis Simulation?
A crisis simulation is a controlled and simulated scenario designed to test an organisation’s ability to respond to a crisis or emergency situation. It is typically conducted by a team of experts who with the organisation to create a realist simulation that mimics a real-life crisis event.
The goal of a crisis simulation is to assess the organisation’s emergency response plans and procedures, identify any potential gaps or weaknesses, and improve overall preparedness.
What is a DRP & BCP?
Disaster Recovery Plan
A DRP is a documented process for responding to and recovering from disruptive incidents such as natural disasters, cyber attacks, and other unexpected events. The aim of a DRP is to minimise the impact of a disaster and ensure that critical business processes and systems can be restored with minimal downtime. The plan typically includes procedures for backing up data, testing, and communicating with stakeholders during and after a disaster.
Business Continuity Plan
A BCP is a comprehensive plan that outlines how an organisation will maintain essential functions during and after a disruptive incident. A BCP typically includes procedures for identifying and assessing risks, developing mitigation strategies, and ensuring that only the necessary resources and processes are in place to continue business operations. It covers domains such as crisis management, communication, data backup and recovery, and alternate site arrangements (if applicable).
