Contingency Plan for IT department

Rather than trying to provide for every possible contingency I have found it
useful on several plans I've developed to create broad categories and then
plan for whatever incident might fall in the category. It is a sort of 3D
matrix based on Scope, Affect and Degree (risk) with:

Scope:
1-Single USer
2-Department
3-Whole Facility
4-Local Area (1-10 miles)
5-Regional (up to 50 miles)

Affect:
A-Single Device
B-Network Segment
C-Entire Network
D-All systems unusable for a period of time
E-All systems totally destroyed

Degree (risk)
1 - Highly likely or frequent
2 - Occaisional or readily foreseeable
3 - Possible
4 - Unlikely
5 - Act of God (or Man) without precident

The develop a plan for various combos (or groups of similar situations) and
factor in preparation costs against the risk level. That is, contingency
for spilling coffee on keyboard (1-A-1) is much lower cost (spare keyboard)
than 5-E-5 (recovery from nuclear war). This way you can plan for anything
without defining exactly every possible situation. I recall the boss in
Dilbert asking the staff to plan for "every unknown possibility".

I have been asked to update our ISO/QS9000 manual with a contingency plan
for the IT department for computers, copiers, faxes, phone system, paging,
etc.... My current plan is minimal at best.
Any vantage land users willing to share any written documents they have
created, it would be much appreciated.
You can email me direct and thanks in advance.

Last time I brought up the subject of contingency planning in case of
emergency the response I got from management was ....

"If we really lucky the entire facility will be leveled. That way we ( the
owners ) can just cash in the insurance plan and retire."

Who says you can't stick your head deeply into the sand ?

I'm one level above you, just write a plan to make our QS9000 auditor happy,
don't spend any money, or much time on this, don't actually do anything but
create a couple pages of BS for our manual, remember your budget is still
zero because of the failing economy.

In the 5 years that I've been IT manager, I've never once been approached by
a an ISO or QS Auditor for anything. Never even gotten a "Hello". The thing
that struck me odd, was that they never asked me a single question before
Y2K. You might try my technique. I keep a baseball bat beside my desk. You'd
be surprised at how well it works in reducing the number of unwanted
questions. LOL.

We spent BIIIIGGGG bucks for a vision system, like six figures and we're
even going to pipe into the ownerships home. So we can SEE whats going on.
So far the catch is some guy stealing skids and a purse snatcher.

I'm one level above you, just write a plan to make our QS9000 auditor happy,
don't spend any money, or much time on this, don't actually do anything but
create a couple pages of BS for our manual, remember your budget is still
zero because of the failing economy.

Last time I brought up the subject of contingency planning in case of
emergency the response I got from management was ....

"If we really lucky the entire facility will be leveled. That way we ( the
owners ) can just cash in the insurance plan and retire."

Who says you can't stick your head deeply into the sand ?

Subject: [Vantage] Contingency Plan for IT department.

I have been asked to update our ISO/QS9000 manual with a contingency plan
for the IT department for computers, copiers, faxes, phone system, paging,
etc.... My current plan is minimal at best.
Any vantage land users willing to share any written documents they have
created, it would be much appreciated.
You can email me direct and thanks in advance.
