Objective: Assess the issues, procedures, and techniques involved in IT resource contingency planning.
Competencies: Critical thinking
Instructions: In approximately 10-12 double-spaced pages discuss the planning steps, possible recovery options, and recommended testing requirements needed to support a successful business contingency/continuity of operations environment. Finally, the paper should include your recommendation for a proposed 24-month cycle business contingency testing plan — what should be tested and how the test should be conducted. Perhaps ranking possible critical corporate assets with the type of testing (i.e., plan reviews, table-top exercises, or perhaps up to and including full blown backup and recovery tests) You should take into consideration costs associated with the recommended testing process — not only personnel and equipment but also production costs.
Prepare your paper in Word. Include a minimum of 5 sources. The citations and the reference list in the paper should be formatted in accordance with APA 6th edition guidelines. Note: Also include a cover page, a one-paragraph abstract, a table of contents and any appendix (if necessary), which do not count toward the regular length of the paper.
After it meets all of the stated criteria in the posting, attach the paper AND (if required) the originality report for IA2 in your Assignments/Dropbox in LEO. Instructors will be submitting all papers through Turnitin, a tool that checks for plagiarism—so be sure that all writing is original and all sources are referenced according to the APA guidelines.
