    Security Office

  • Introductions name and agency
  • CA State Information Security Office
  • Definitions
  • Four Types of Continuity Plans
  • Review of BL 07-03 ORP Changes
  • ORP-COOP/COG Alignment
  • Discuss Test Scenarios


State Information Security Office
  • Vision
  • Leading the way to secure the State's
  • information assets.
  • Mission
  • To manage security and operational
  • recovery risk for the State's
  • information assets by providing
  • statewide direction and leadership.

  • Emergency Response

Business Continuity Planning (BCP)
  • Process of developing and documenting
    arrangements and procedures that enable an
    organization to respond to an event that lasts
    for an unacceptable period of time and return to
    performing its critical functions after an

Operational Recovery Planning (ORP)
  • The management approved document that defines the
    resources, actions, tasks and data required to
    manage the technology recovery effort.  Usually
    refers to the technology recovery effort.  This
    is a component of the Business Continuity
    Management Program. 
  • DISASTER RECOVERY PLAN (also known as
    Operational Recovery Plan)
  • Definition from Disaster Recovery Journal (DRI)
    website at http//www.drj.com/glossary/

Continuity of Operations (COOP)
  • The activities of individual departments and
    agencies and their sub-components to ensure that
    their essential functions are continued under all
    circumstances. This includes plans and
    procedures that delineate essential functions
    specify succession to office and the emergency
    delegation of authority provide for the
    safekeeping of vital records and databases
    identify alternate operating facilities provide
    for interoperable communications and validate
    the capability through tests, training, and

Continuity of Government (COG)
  • The preservation, maintenance, or reconstitution
    of the institution of government. It is the
    ability to carry out an organizations
    constitutional responsibilities. This is
    accomplished through succession of leadership,
    the pre-delegation of emergency authority and
    active command and control.

Relationship of Plans
Three Phases of Continuity
Emergency Response - Life Safety First 72 Hours
Restoration Business back to normal
IT Operational Recovery up to 30 days
Planning, Documenting, Testing, and Training
Business Recovery up to 30 days
Damage Assessment First 72 hours
Phase I
Phase II
Phase III
  • Disruption of business occurs and you are
    informed, next steps
  • 1. Emergency Response safety and security of
  • 2. Securing the site.
  • 3. Activate COOP/COG Plan to ensure the
    continuation of essential functions.
  • 4. Implementation of the communication plan.
  • 5. After assessing incident, determine if
    implementation of BCP ORP is required.
  • 6. Contact SISO to report incident.
  • 7. Implement BCP and ORP

Budget Letter 07-03
  • SAM Section 4843 Operational Recovery Planning
  • Use results from risk analysis and business
    impact analysis to identify critical business
  • Include the operational recovery considerations
    and costs in FSRs.
  • Develop ORP as part of a complete continuity

Budget Letter 07-03 Continued
  • SAM Section 4843.1 Agency Operational Recovery
  • Rewritten to clarify and enhance operational
    recovery requirements.
  • Removal of minimum components from policy.
  • SIMM 65A ORP Documentation for Agencies
    Preparation Instructions
  • Requires ten minimum components in ORP.
  • Additional three components for agencies without
    a BCP or COOP/COG.

ORP Documentation Revised
  • Components to be included in the ORP updated in
    January 2007.
  • The April and July quarterly filers must provide
    a cover sheet indicating where the information
    for each topic area in SIMM 65A is located in the
    agencys Operational Recovery Plan.
  • All components listed in SIMM 65A must be
    addressed and included in agencies ORPs
    beginning in October 2007.

Changes for ORP Development
  • Overall
  • Requires more details
  • New Components
  • Backup and offsite storage
  • Data Center Services
  • Contact information
  • Removed from SAM and Policy
  • Damage Recognition
  • Preparation of cost-benefit analysis
  • Selection of alternative
  • SIMM Section 140A

New Requirements
  • ORPs must describe
  • Agency Administrative Information
  • Critical Business Functions/Applications
  • Recovery Strategy
  • Backup and Offsite Storage Procedures
  • Operational Recovery Procedures
  • Data Center Services
  • Resource Requirements
  • Assignment of Responsibility
  • Contact Information
  • Testing

Supplemental Requirements
  • Agencies that have not developed and implemented
    a full business continuity plan or COOP/COG must
    also address and include the following in their
  • Damage Recognition and Assessment
  • Mobilization of Personnel
  • Primary Site Restoration and Relocation

Agency Administrative Information
  • A communication plan should include strategy on
  • How information will flow (escalation)
  • Decision making processes
  • Interrelationship among agency resources for
    response, recovery and resumption

Example - Escalation Process
  • Single site, minor impact. User calls into Help
    Desk with possible virus infection. Communication
    Plan strategy includes
  • Process to dispatch field support to check PC
  • If infected, take steps to identify and
  • notify ISO and IT Management
  • Eradicate virus
  • Verify virus has not spread

What would you do?
  • Multiple site, major impact. The virus outbreak
    has spread from your headquarters to your remote
    offices and is running rampant. The anti-virus
    software will not eradicate it and all the
    systems in your agency are being impacted.
  • What would your communication plan need to

Communication Plan
  • Document
  • Who to contact and under what circumstances
  • Lists name, phone , cell , home , email

    that the services on the email server are not
    working. As a critical business function,
    recovery strategy includes
  • Process for IT staff to check services
  • If denial of service, follow internal procedures
    to identify and mitigate.
  • Notify ISO and IT Management

What would you do?
  • Multiple site, major impact. The email server has
    crashed, there are both hardware and software
    failures. Rebuilding the server will require
    replacement hardware, which will take several
    days to acquire and configure.
  • What would your Critical Business Functions /
    Applications need to include?

Procedures for Critical Functions

    the contact list.

Sample Recovery Strategy
  • Department has three locations
  • 1234 Headquarters St., Sacto, 95814
  • 5678 Anywhere St., Sacto, 95825
  • 9876 SomePlace St., LA 90210
  • Critical operations would be restored at an
    unaffected site (identify priority and equipment
  • Contact
  • J Resto at (916) 555-1212 for Headquarters
  • R Quick at (916) 444-1212 for Anywhere
  • M Pia at (213) 555-1212 for SomePlace

Backup and Offsite Storage
