ICT Disaster Recovery for Business Continuity Policy

Policy: The policy supports agencies in building their ICT disaster recovery capabilities to ensure better business continuity outcomes.

The purpose of the policy is to:

  • support agencies in ensuring services are available
    • at a level which enables them to meet their objectives and obligations 
    • within reasonable community expectations
  • ensure that ICT disaster recovery is integrated within agencies’ risk management and business continuity frameworks
  • support agencies in improving their ICT disaster recovery skills and capabilities.

We released the whole-of-government the policy in May 2016. This policy was reviewed in April 2017 and updated with a supplementary guide.
