Disaster Recovery
In the event of disaster guidelines for recovery will include the last date if saved information that is prior to disaster date and pertinent information will be recovered.
Data Migration Description
The data is initially in paper forms and entered into a web-based application, where it is stored for use in reporting and certificate/permit issuance. The electronic data is maintained via the application, and does not interface with other applications, nor is it archived, so there is no migration, although it is backed up on a standard schedule. System upgrades/enhancements do not initiate a new version; the system remains the same with a new feature.
