The idea for this study came from the need for a disaster recovery plan for a new product from the commissioner of this thesis. The aim of the study is to research the essential components of a disaster recovery plan and to look at ways to create a top-level disaster recovery plan. A disaster recovery plan is a crucial part of any service in the modern IT world. A disaster recovery plan should provide ease of mind for the stakeholders of a ser-vice and the assurance that the key personnel responsible for the service can do their ut-most to ensure a reliable experience for the users of the service. This thesis utilizes re-search, online material, books and the overview of a DRP case study for the creation of a high-level disaster recovery plan. This thesis does not provide the reader with a compre-hensive step by step guide on how a disaster recovery is created but is aimed to provide a general overview and good practices for planning and creating an IT disaster recovery plan.
