Expert Paper - Project

Overview:

The purpose of the project is to create an incident response/disaster recovery document that can be used by your organization in the event of a perceived or potential threat that may harm your business or employees.  First, make sure it is a credible solution since a hurricane disaster plan for a business in Michigan is about as realistic as a loss of power due to a major snow storm at sea level in Hawaii.  Yes, it could happen, but the likelihood is very slim. Second, it should be a threat that has a potential for happening such as mechanical failure, natural disaster, human caused and so on.  Lastly, make sure it is a business and a geographic location you are familiar with to make this a worthwhile exercise.

Examples of incidents could include, but not be limited to;

Malicious Virus infects a computer

Employee Destruction of Critical Information

ISP provider goes down

City-wide Power Outage

Flooding

Physical break-in with damage and/or theft of major equipment
