This will include an outside vendor who will provide backup services in the event that the programs at The Bloom Design Group fail for one reason or another. In the interest of financial feasibility, The Group should contract for a warm site to step in if the home networks are compromised.

For each testing method listed, briefly describe each method and your rationale for why it will or will not be included in your DRP test plan.

The first assessment of the plan would be to implement a supervised walk-through of the test. By conducting this test it will present any added material regarding any additional processes that may need to be added, adjustments in measures that are not sufficient, and additional pertinent changes. The policy has to be amended to legitimate any issues found during the test. The first test run would be best completed in fractions and when less activity is being completed to lessen interruptions to the inclusive operations of the organization. This is an excellent option to include in The Bloom Design Group disaster recovery plan (DRP).

2 Simulations

This is a situation where a mockup is created to closely simulate an attack or other danger (Merkow, 2006). This will mimic the response to emergency as closely as possible. This is an excellent option to include in The Bloom Design Group disaster recovery plan (DRP).

In this situation, the members of The Bloom Design Group...
