Disaster Recovery

The Disaster Recovery Manager works to ensure that Information Services Division can promptly and effectively recover both its business and Information Technology processes in the event of an emergency.

Internal ASET COOP Planning
ASET leverages best practices from the Federal Government’s Continuity Of OPerations (COOP) model to provide:

  • continued performance of essential ASET functions,
  • clearly identify succession to office of key ASET leadership,
  • mitigate disruptions to ASET operations,
  • protect essential ASET assets and
  • achieve timely ASET recovery.

Customer Disaster Recovery Services (Information Technology Processes)
In addition to providing the technology infrastructure for itself, ASET also services Open System and Mainframe operations for State Agencies, Boards and Commissions. For over 20 years, ASET has strived to improve its DR strategy using the latest technology to reduce recovery time.
