Answer all questions below in a single document, preferably below the corresponding topic.

Responses should be no longer than half a page.

1. BCP and DRP are getting more attention in organizations today because the risks are better

understood, business partnership constructs require them, and regulatory and legal

requirements pertaining to this type of protection are increasing. Provide examples with

organizations that have undergone these BC/DR requirements for their business nature. You

may use fictitious examples to support your arguments.

2. Unfortunately, many companies have to experience the pain of a disaster to understand how

it could have circumvented or mitigated the events that caused the pain. Provide a short

Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) to prevent a small company’s IT operation. Make a list of

procedures to compete in preparation of the DRP. You may use fictitious examples to support

your arguments.

3. To develop and carry out business continuity efforts successfully, plenty of thought, planning,

time, and effort must go into the different phases of this activity. The real threats must be

identified and understood, reasonable countermeasures must be put into place, and detailed

plans must be outlined for the unfortunate but anticipated day when they are needed. As part of

the DRP, make a list of procedures to complete a successful DR plan. You may use fictitious

examples to support your arguments if needed.
