Responsible for coordinating the development of advance arrangements and procedures to ensure the organization can respond to a disaster so that the critical business functions can be resumed within a defined time frame, the amount of loss can be minimized, and any stricken facilities can be repaired or replaced as quickly as possible. This responsibility includes coordinating the design, development, maintenance, and exercising (testing) of the overall disaster recovery plans for each critical functional area of the organization. These disaster recovery plans must address three major elements of the recovery process: (1) the Emergency Response organization and procedures for reacting to and coordinating recovery efforts; (2) the Recovery Support procedures for restoring key organization resources; and (3) the Business Resumption procedures for the continuation of critical business processes

Add training to the list

by LittleDragon In reply to Here you go

I would include training, or maybe call it education, as part of the DR manager's responsibilities. This person must make sure that all areas of the organization are aware of the need for Disaster Recovery and are familiar with the processes and procedures in place. Whenever a new application or system is implemented, the DRM must insure that DR planning and testing are part of the rollout/implementation process.
