Business Continuity Planning & Disaster Recovery Planning

SANS and NIST offer different approaches to business continuity planning and disaster recovery planning, although each company has its strengths and weaknesses in their disaster management plans.

SANS Institute focuses on the restoration of the operationality of the information system first, while NIST focuses on the development of the Federal information systems, which involve the deployment of alternative solutions to compensate the shutdown of the main information system.  Furthermore, SANS Institute focuses on external threats mainly, such as terror attacks, while NIST focuses on internal threats to the information security mainly.  Also SANS includes the inclusion of all professionals working on the business continuity planning and disaster recovery management into all units. In contrast, NIST creates the unique team working on the disaster management, which works as a solid unit.

In spite of obvious differences, both SANS and NIST have substantial similarities in their approaches to the disaster management. First, both companies focus on the planning as the key element of the disaster management. Both companies stand on the ground that the emergency plan is the core condition of the successful disaster management. Second, both companies pay a lot of attention to employees involved into the disaster management and planning to maximize their effectiveness in case of emergency. Finally, both companies develop close external links with government as well as non-government agencies to respond to a disaster more effectively, because there are cases, when resources of companies are not enough and they need the support of other agencies.

Thus, SANS and NIST have developed reliable disaster management plans to address emergency cases successfully. In this regard, differences in their plans are determined by specificities of their operations and threats to their performance.
