Can the Office of Information Security provide assistance or resources in developing an agency’s Technology Recovery Plan?
The Office of Information Security (OIS) will provide assistance in a limited consulting capacity. For example, the OIS will meet with an agency to help ensure the agency fully understands the requirements for submission and content of the Technology Recovery Plan (TRP), and answer any questions about whether or not the agency’s plan or approach meets the requirements.
Unfortunately, the OIS does not have the resources to develop an agency’s TRP or to be part of the agency’s TRP development team. This type of assistance can be acquired through a number of mechanisms including contracting with vendors, coordinating with the Office of Technology Services, or possibly forming workgroups with other agencies for assistance with the development.
NOTE: The OIS has and does offer guidance and training in technology recovery planning to assist agencies in the development of their TRPs.
