business continuity and disaster recovery plans scenario


You are an IT system manager working for  the KION Group with the main headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany.  Forklift trucks and warehouse automation equipment are the company’s  main products. A disaster that destroys half or all of a  modern business’s data center is the worst-case scenario. This includes  all of the computers and discs inside it. While such a scenario is  uncommon, it is possible, and not just in the event of a major natural  disaster, such as an earthquake or electrical surges due to a storm.  These circumstances can permanently destroy data centers. The strength of the KION group is  determined by the quality of a business impact analysis (BIA). Because  this is the blueprint that will get you out of any situation, no matter  how big or small, you can navigate easily if the map is well-made.  However, if the information is out of date, incomplete, or otherwise  compromised, you will have difficulty getting back to business as usual. Ensuring you have offsite backups of  your data is the greatest approach to preparing your organization for a  disaster like this. If your production data is stored on-premises in one  of your data centers, you’ll need to make backups of it in a different  data center, or the cloud. If your data is stored in the cloud, you have  the option of backing it up to local storage, another cloud, or another  area of the same cloud. It is essential to restore backup data  on new infrastructure as quickly as possible. Moving significant volumes  of data via the Internet takes a long time, so it’s not a good idea in  the event of a crisis. Moving physical copies of discs from one location  to another could be faster in some situations. Alternatively, it may be  faster and easier to set up new servers in the data center where your  backup data is stored, link them to the backup data, and then use them  as production servers. Because your team is performing so well,  senior management at the KION group decided that your team must  establish a business continuity plan (BCP) and a disaster recovery plan  (DRP) to deal with difficulties that may arise now or in the future.  You’ve been tasked with creating these new plans. 


Write a 3–4 page paper in which you:

  2. Explain how a BIA helps evaluate data and categorize risks with  respect to technology, individuals, and the organization in regard to  the above scenario.
  3. Explain the purpose of a BCP, including how a BCP helps to  mitigate risks in regard to the above scenario, and recommend two best  practices to follow when creating a BCP.
  4. Explain the purpose of a DRP, including how a DRP helps to  mitigate risks in regard to the above scenario and recommend one best  practice to follow when creating a DRP.
  5. Use at least two quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia  and similar websites do not qualify as quality resources. The Strayer  University Library is a good source for resources.
