    Re: Disaster recovery plan/Business Continuity plan

    First identify what you want to cover under the disaster recovery umbrella.

    Typically it would be all resources - H/w, S/w as well as key resource information.

    From the key resource information angle, typically it is good to have a common (constantly updated) DB of project resources, the roles they play, their contact details as well as identify backups for the key players.

    The nest step would be to collate project information:
    This includes:
    1. Project details, client info, PM, Back up PM,
    2. Hardware/ software requirements, no. of licenses, version nos etc
    3. Location / path of the version control system for backup (and recovery)
    4. Location of key project machines and folders for backup and recovery
    5. Key steps and documents for software installation and development
    6. Establish the backup schedules (daily, weekly monthly, onsite, offsite, etc etc).

    Once you do this, the next step would be to bring up the environment in another location / by people independent of the project.

    Having this basic setup in place, will then give scope to establish processes, routines and schedules for testing.

    Do note all information needs to be up-to-date and updated constantly to be effective.
    Hope this helps.

    Primarily, they normally fall under the Program Manager.
    They may then be offset to Project Manager, Test Manager or Development Manager.
    It may well be the remit of the IT support group!
    What it comes down to, as always, is the company set up and the skill sets within each of the teams.
    Does a QA analyst tackle it? Only if they have the technical knowledge.
    These are specialist areas that require knowledge from System Architecture, through hardware and software.
    Ethical hacking is a good tool for security testing, which again requires another area of expertise usually outside the skill set of a QA analyst. Techie QAs please note I did say "usually".

    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me who's responsible for Business continuity, Fail over & recovery planning, and security testing? Do they fall under the scope of QA Analyst?

    Thanks advance for your great help
