Business Continuity Recommendations

Departments using any of the Ivanti products are expected to maintain written documentation detailing Ivanti system usage to ensure business continuity. Departmental written documentation should include:

  • Training materials provided for new staff whose responsibility involves any of the Ivanti systems utilized by the department. These may be included as part of departmental standard operating procedures.
  • Test plan to be executed in preparation for updates to any of the Ivanti systems utilized by the department.
  • Alternative business procedures to be used during planned or unplanned downtimes of any of the Ivanti systems utilized by a department.
  • Routine and emergency contact information for the Ivanti System Administrators and any departmental staff responsible for overseeing Ivanti usage.

For a template, visit the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (DEM) Continuity Plan.
