Network Disaster Recovery Plan

Definition - What does Network Disaster Recovery Plan mean?

A network disaster recovery plan is a set of policies and procedures that ensure that a network is reinstated to its normal working operations after it goes offline or is disrupted after a disastrous event.

It is a type of disaster recovery plan that is specifically designed for Internet and external network infrastructure of an organization.

Techopedia explains Network Disaster Recovery Plan

The network disaster recovery plan is usually in the form a formal document that is created by network administrator and other key IT /network management staff. Depending on the underlying network and organization requirements, it may include plans and procedures for recovering:

  • Local area networks (LAN), wide area networks (WAN) and wireless networks
  • Network-based applications and services
  • Servers and computer systems

The disaster can be a natural and/or physical disaster, such as flooding or fire, or a "virtual" disaster in the form of viruses or hacker attacks.

The plan may also include possible threats, network weaknesses and/or vulnerabilities, which if exploited can result in network outage or degradation and the procedures to counter them.
