It is necessary to consider the need to store copies of key documents, data and systems away from the main office. Off-site storage is readily available in all major towns and cities, and part of the back-up and recovery strategy is to ensure that copies of data records and vital documents are stored at an alternative safe location.
This section of the BCP should contain information regarding off-site storage locations used by the organisation including addresses and contact numbers. Information on how to obtain the necessary access during an emergency should also be included, together with the names and contact numbers of key personnel who are responsible for the safe keeping of such records or data.
