Reply To: OCU ISSO D Week 05 Lesson 16 Discussion

Kelly Crooks

From the information I gathered from the video on lesson 16, there are several ways to prepare and plan for a disaster. I have listed four of those ways below:

1. A company or organization needs to identify items, that if planned properly will not turn into a disaster. This includes making sure that they have redundant power supplies, backed up communication mechanisms, identifying single points of failure, and recognizing necessary fault-tolerant solutions.

2. An organization also can plan for and be prepared for a disaster by having fault tolerance and redundancy technology installed and working properly. Making sure that the right fire and safety inspections are in place and tested regularly which includes installation and testing of fire detection and suppression equipment.

3. Making sure that the equipment they have is maintained and tested regularly will help in case of a disaster. Having offsite data backups wheater that is other servers offsite or cloud computing backups. Making sure that the data is backed up and current on another device of some kind will ensure that the process goes well when trying to restore the data.

4. Employee training and testing are vital in planning for a disaster of any kind. If the employees know the procedures and protocols for a disaster and are trained in what to do it will make the process much easier. Making sure that each employee knows their role should a disaster occur will ensure that everyone is safe and that the data can be restored promptly depending on the situation.
