When an unplanned event occurs, incident response plans are essential for minimizing the severity and maximizing the speed of response to the event. The faster a disruptive event can be assessed and a response launched, the greater the chances of a quick resolution with minimal damage. An incident response component to a DR plan provides the action steps needed to identify the situation, notify employees who will conduct an assessment, discuss options for a response, and secure management agreement on a response. Assuming a decision is made to activate DR plans, the incident response activity is scaled back and DR activities are launched.
