The scenarios should be based on the most risky situations inherent to the environment. The proper procedure would be to conduct a business impact assessment (BIA) to identify the financial and operational impact of interruptions to the service, then do a risk analysis to identify the riskiest threats and vulnerabilities in the system. The result is the base for the test cases you should prepare against.

Typically a disaster recovery plan should have preplanned responses to disasters in the following areas:

# IT infrastructure: Network, Internet access, data and application servers.
# Building facilities: Electricity, cooling, heating, water, fire.
# Communications: E-mail, landline telephones, cell phones.
# Personnel: Key personnel required to take action during a crisis.
