The incumbent will oversee and coordinate the Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery maintenance and operations program, including the establishment of a process for keeping disaster recovery plans and associated activities up-to-date.  Responsibilities will include conducting yearly mock-drills and testing, ensuring that documentation and procedures are accurate and updated.  The incumbent will audit and review plans to ensure they remain fit for purpose and consistent with applicable standards and management controls, and establish a process for continuous improvement of the overall disaster recovery program.

The incumbent will also conduct impact analysis of changes on disaster recovery capability.  Any change to a service, or services, which may affect the disaster recovery capability will be implemented only after the business continuity implications of the change have been assessed and addressed to ensure that these strategies and plans are continuous improvement so information and procedures do not become out of date.

As OIT’s DR strategy starts leveraging the Amazon Cloud and applications are migrated to AWS, the incumbent will work with various OIT teams to incorporate AWS processes, procedures, and documentation into DR Operations and Maintenance as relevant and appropriate.  This will be especially important for hybrid implementations where AWS applications may have dependencies on on-premises components or applications that will be migrated to AWS without DR capability.  The incumbent will ensure that our DR data center and AWS DR have unified and consistent DR operations and maintenance as required.

The incumbent may also be assigned project management of projects that are directly or indirectly related to disaster recovery. These may include infrastructure projects as well as software development or vendor implementation projects. The incumbent will create project plans and schedules, manages costs, and ensure projects are executed in compliance with quality and regulatory requirements and client expectations.  Some requirements and business analysis may also be required.
