1 Introduction RCCD Disaster Recovery Plan for Technology Services This plan provides the operational priorities and procedures for restoration of communication and information technology systems to support district business and briefly reviews the hazards across the District service area. It provides a detailed summary of the technical aspects of recovery from a major disaster event. The District needs to maintain business functions during an event if possible, or to promptly restore service afterwards. Recovery actions are facilitated by a pre-tested action plan and documented resource information. The system restoration actions support local and wide-area network and internet connectivity, integrated communications systems, and essential computer systems Mission & Objective - The IT Disaster Recovery Plan establishes defined responsibilities, actions, and procedures to recover the communication, and network and computer environment in the event of major interruption. The plan is established from assessment and prioritization of client and business objectives. Provide a written and tested plan Recovery of the physical network within the Critical Time Frames Recovery of the applications and communications systems Minimize the impact on business operations Scope Summary of existing procedures and systems, documentation Priority of actions and restoration, procedures, responsibilities Resources and contacts for district, community, vendors Framework for ongoing review and improvement, recommendations Focused on critical business systems communications and connectivity (VoIP, LAN/WAN network, messaging, wireless), system applications (Colleague, security, file servers) Factors The area of northern California served by Redwoods Community College District is subject to natural disasters and to outages of critical infrastructure. Substantial earthquakes occur routinely (Cape Mendocino - 9/1/1993 M7.0, 4/25/92 M7.3; Eureka - 11/8/1980 M7.2, 1/10/1910 M6.5, 6/15/1905 M7.2, 1/31/1922 M7.3). Even those with lower magnitude 1

2 are capable of and have caused localized damage. The Eureka Campus sits directly atop the Little Salmon fault zone. Tsunamis are created locally by the 700 mile-long Cascadia subduction zone (01/26/1700) and have impacted from distant areas (Alaska 3/28/1962, Japan 3/11/2011). Localized flooding has occurred resulting from extreme weather or tide conditions (12/18/1964 1/7/1965). Power outages are occasionally days long in duration. The area is heavily forested and falling trees have taken down many sections of electrical transmission lines. The area has limited internet connectivity, with several outages having occurred when the fiber optic lines were severed or burned. A fire occurred within the Student Union in 2010 which destroyed the network switch used for meal plan terminals and point of sale registers The District is very exposed to the aftereffects of an earthquake and / or tsunami event collapsed bridges, blocked roadways, sites and highways at or near sea level elevation, interrupted communication circuits. This puts local storage and access to backup data archives at risk. The Ellucian ERP platform is on unique and expensive hardware, and runs on a legacy internal database software (UniData) such that backup platform sharing with another college is difficult. Contagious pandemic or major flu outbreaks (avian flu 2009) would cause a closure of the campus sites. The District web site is a crucial link for communications during these events. It needs to remain available to Students and the overall community, and staff must be able to be make updates. The integrated network provides data, voice and video communications and is essential to district operations. The overall Emergency Messaging system utilizes video, cell phones, and messaging to provide alerts and updates, and it must remain operational or be restored promptly. Summary The functional plan is provided in Appendix A, and will support activities during response to an incident. Appendix B provides the integrated planning elements required to assess, develop, and improve the overall IT Disaster Plan. The IT plan provides a framework for restoration of communication services and applications support. Planning by other departments will support their specific operation requirements and response. The overall district Emergency Response Plan provides an overview of all support functions, team definitions, policies, and procedures. This plan is based on templates and elements from the Palomar CCD Data Center Recovery Plan and the Glendale State College Administrative Information Systems Disaster Recovery Plan. 2

4 Appendix A Operations and Procedures Preventative Measures These operational and preventative measures will reduce the chance of a computer disaster occurring and minimize its impact. The measures need to be performed routinely to maintain their status and to provide current information for systems and procedures. Annual testing of plan, including drills and restoration from backup data Restrict access to the computer facility to authorized personnel only Ensure there are no excessive combustible materials located in the systems rooms. Conduct regularly scheduled service on support systems, including air conditioning, fire retardant, and UPS devices Check for overloaded circuits or worn/damaged electrical and power cables Perform regularly scheduled backups and store at off-site facility Store copies of vital documentation off-site - Disaster Recovery Plan, Configuration Schematics, Maintenance and Service Contracts, etc. Annual review and improvement utilizing integrated planning processes 4

5 Annual Review and System Testing The annual testing of data archive restoration will provide confirmation of system functionality and illustrate actions to improve the processes. The measures need to be performed routinely to maintain their status and to provide current information for systems and procedures. Annual testing of plan, including drills and restoration from backup data. The disaster plan must be kept current and all personnel on the recovery team must be made aware of any plan changes and fully trained to perform their assigned tasks. The offsite storage area should be inspected annually to ensure it is clean, organized and that the correct backups are in storage. The firefighting system in the computer room should be inspected annually Department heads should be aware of the consequences of a disaster and develop alternate data processing procedures while recovery is in progress. The Facilities department maintains and distributes the District s Emergency Telephone Numbers List of pertinent personnel to contact in case of an emergency. Procedures and lead times for replacement equipment and communications should be established. All computing personnel should be informed of the proper emergency and evacuation procedures 5

6 Recovery Timetable RCCD Disaster Recovery Plan for Technology Services The following timetable is estimated and does not take into account the amount of time required to input data held on hardcopy during the recovery period, or re-inputting data which may have been lost during recovery. Day 1 Day 2-4 Day 5-12 Day Convene the disaster recovery team, ascertain the extent of the damage and evaluate potential consequences, notify department heads, contact vendors, discuss options. Release formal communication to the campus community. At the disaster site, carry-out a safety inspection, inventory status of existing equipment and files, make a full evaluation of the damage, provide detailed accounting for insurance claims, and retrieve vital documents and reusable equipment. At the Escondido Center, prep the backup facility, set up administrative support services, make arrangements for staff work space, compile an inventory of surviving equipment and assess communications (voice/data) and network capabilities. Define priorities for restoring minimal network services and Data Center operations, order new equipment and estimate the emergency mode processing time frame. Test the Payroll Recovery Procedure, expedite authorization of recovery expenditures, record the costs, and notify regulatory authorities of the work place change. Obtain system data backup tapes and ensure all relevant documentation is retrieved from the offsite storage facility for restoration of network services and information systems. Take delivery and install new equipment. Restore programs and data, and test integrity of programs and data. Reconfigure communications network equipment and ensure that the reinstated communications environment is operable and tested. Make priority determination of data processing and systems, restore partial operation to priority departments, enforce current computer and information systems security standards. Before undertaking any processing, transfer security copies of all files and programs to offsite storage location. Restore full communications and networking capabilities. Work with departments to verify data and operation of application. Start processing in accordance with prepared production schedules. 6
