|1. Recover is the process of planning for and/or implementing the recovery of only the most time-sensitive operations or critical business functions immediately follows an interruption or disaster.
Related Terms: Business Continuity Life Cycle.
Note (1): Recovery occurs after immediate response actions are taken and when the BC Plan is activated. This usually entails the execution of recovery procedures without the availability of the pre-prepared resources. The reason is that there is insufficient time to reach the alternate site as the traveling duration will result in the critical business function exceeding its acceptable Recovery Time Objective (RTO).
Note (2): For DRP, recover is used differently from business continuity, it is to recover the applications and data from backup media and clear the backlog (manual entries and data that needs to be created). This should be done before the Re-sync stage.
