If IT systems equipment has been damaged during the emergency it will need to be repaired or replaced. This section of the BCP excludes the production equipment and telecommunications equipment both of which have dedicated procedures for restoring these specialised services. It does however include all other equipment owned or used by the organisation.
The linked procedure is given as a guideline which must be carefully reviewed and amended by the organisation to ensure that it fully meets their own requirements. In some cases, the services of outside specialists may be required to carry out the activity. Amend the pre-defined items within the plan template, as appropriate.
