A Brief Guide to Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans

A Brief Guide to Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans is a book that all employees and especially business owners will benefit from. This book discusses these two plans and the contents of each document. This book will first talk about risks, threats, and incidents. From there we will take a look at risk assessment and business impact analysis. With those topics covered, we will have the foundation to discuss business continuity plans (BCP) and disaster recovery plans (DRP).


IT Disaster Response: Lessons Learned in the Field

This book examines disasters in general―a compilation of lessons the author learned over the course of years working in IT, reviewing plane crashes, and his experiences as a cave rescuer and cave rescue instructor. Although at first it may seem that none of these are really related, the truth is they all have elements in common. In each case, the unexpected has happened. Just as not all plane crashes are deadly, not all IT mishaps have terrible consequences. With the proper training and approach, many problems can either be avoided in the first place or better handled if they do arise.

With distributed networks, increasing demands for confidentiality, integrity and availability of data, and the widespread risks to the security of personal, confidential and sensitive data, no organization can afford to ignore the need for disaster planning.

It provides relevant information to any organization, regardless of which operating systems or applications are deployed, what backup system is in place, or what planning has been done for business continuity.
