Domain 8: Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning


This chapter focuses on Domain 8: Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning. A thorough understanding of both Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP) is required in order to be successful with questions from this domain. A key goal is to understand the differences in the scope and purpose of the BCP and DRP. DRP represents a more tactical information systems’ focused exercise while the BCP, which includes DRP as one of its components, is considerably more vast and high level. Key concepts for this domain include that of performing a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) and determining a system’s Maximum Tolerable Downtime (MTD).
