ICT Disaster Recovery Planning

Tabled: 29 November 2017


Information and communications technology (ICT) systems are critical for the operations of government agencies. Agencies depend on them to deliver public services, efficiently and effectively manage operations and fulfil statutory obligations. To make sure their systems remain available and continue to operate reliably, agencies must be able to recover and restore them in the event of a disruption.

In this audit, we examined whether the disaster recovery processes of government departments and Victoria Police are likely to be effective in the event of a disruption. We audited the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR), the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Department of Justice and Regulation (DJR).
