Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

In two pages with intext citations and scholarly references,
briefly discuss the following sub-topics

1. It
is important all organizations to have a disaster recovery and business
continuity plan. Find out if your current or prior organization has/had a
disaster recovery plan. You will be discussing the following:

a) Does
the definition of disaster recovery used in the course fit well in the
organization’s disaster recovery plan? Why or why not?

b) What
disaster type(s) apply to the organization?

c) Identify
a threat(s) that the organization has not incorporated into its disaster
recovery plan.

d) If
you had to make a change to the organization’s existing disaster recovery plan,
what obstacles might you encounter? Who are the various stakeholders and what
objections are they likely to raise?

e) What
do you think a disaster recovery plan and a business continuity plan should provide
for an organization? Do you see major differences between the two plans? Do you
think they should be in one document or not? Justify your answer.

2. Disaster
recovery and business continuity standards are written to address IT issues
such as data center operations, data storage, protecting hardware and software,
security, and more. They are set of guidelines that describe what should be
done to protect IT assets.

a) List
three disaster recovery and business continuity standards used in an actual
organization and what year the standards were developed.

b) Discuss
some information on how those standards are used and for what purpose.

3. Identify
the business or industry in which you are currently working or have worked in
the past and discuss the threats to which that industry is susceptible, ranking
them by likelihood and severity.

4. Discuss
the benefits of the three-tiered system of prioritizing recovery efforts, and
provide examples of each tier in a department of an organization.
