Disaster Plan Assignment
Read the company descriptions below and select one. Create a disaster plan for your selected organization that includes how you would recommend the company back up and protect network data. Your plan should be 1,250 to 1,500 words in length, and your recommendations must be based on the RAID system of data protection. Your plan must also address how the company should protect against natural disasters that might occur in its geographic location. Include any charts, graphs, or visual components that are helpful in illustrating your plan. Company A

The IST Department of XYZ Computers is located on the first floor. Payroll and all human resources records are processed daily and bi-weekly for 10,000 employees. After payroll is run, data is backed up using tapes. No firewall is in place and email is on the same server as payroll.

XYZ Computers is located in the southern part of the United States in an area that receives heavy rain. During the weekend, a major water pipe broke and flooded the first floor. The water caused extensive damage to the servers, which were on the floor.

Create a disaster plan to prevent this sort of problem from happening in the future.

Company B

123 Textiles Corporation is located in a high-crime area that also experiences occasional earthquakes. A new network was set up with the server by a window. All systems are backed up once a month on an exterior drive. One night, a thief entered through the window and stole the server.

Create a disaster plan that would better protect the organization’s technological assets.
