Chapter 6: Business Continuity


Section 1: Business Continuity Policy

The Business Continuity Policy is to create, test, and maintain a system of high-level implementation plans for restoring critical information systems to the latest documented functionality. The intent of the policy is to ensure that TxDOT can resume its services after a natural or man-made incident prohibits the Agency from accessing its virtual or physical information resources.


Four objectives serve as the cornerstones to ensure TxDOT’s information assets can be redeployed to support its business services:

  • managing change
  • creating contingencies
  • responding to incidents
  • recovering from disasters.

Each of these objectives is discussed in the following sections of this chapter. Each outline provides a brief introduction of the objective, lists the minimum protocol TxDOT must follow, and assigns the responsibility for the work.
