Module 3 – SLP
BUSINESS CONTINUITY AND DISASTER RECOVERY
The following example demonstrates how to analyze a particular organization/industry/market’s preparedness for business continuity.

Were the policies stated by SEC in 2003 implemented by 2007?

Practicing business continuity planning and disaster recovery to one’s own experiences offers an opportunity to apply what you’ve learned to the real world. Can you choose a particular information system security domain of your organization or industry and apply what you learned from the case readings and the SLP example? You can choose to assess comprehensively, or you can choose not to cover all the aspects of business continuity but to focus on two or three major perspectives and go much more in depth. You can choose the same security domain in the previous SLP assignment(s) in this course, or start with a new one.
