Overview / Executive Summary
Starting and running a business successfully requires several resources like infrastructure,
staff, and technology. Taking considerations of large organization, they are composed of several
structures and departments that work together to ensure that the organizational goals are
achieved. Most organizations have emphasized on utilization of technology to enhance business
operations. Despite technology being the major core aspect that determines the success of most
businesses today, it could break the organization within the shortest time. Small and large
organizations rely on the internet today, this means that any interference of network would
interfere with major operation areas and operations in the business. Unplanned occurrences that
affect businesses and its operations have necessitated organizations to set up a plan that
guarantees acceptable standards of services during this periods. A well designed business
continuity and disaster recovery plan is going to ensure that these unexpected events are
accommodated without necessarily affecting business operations. This article is going to present
a research for InfoSec Disaster Recovery Plans, Business Continuity Plans and Continuity of
Operations Plans with regards to risk management.

1. How can organizations enhance the sustainability of their plans?
2. What are some of the approaches that have been taken by the organization’s contingency
to ensure that these information security risks are mitigated?
3. What are some of the best practices to prepare, deploy, and maintain a disaster recovery
and business continuity plan?

There has to be a formal comprehensive description of day-to-day business operations
and security management to enhance business continuity and disaster recovery planning that is
tailored to meet the organizational acceptable standards of service provision. A business
recovery plan is a critical and an essential component with regards to organizational risk
management. “Depending on the nature of the organization and its size and various other factors,
a company must design an optimal plan to minimize the effect of disaster and continue the
critical business functions” (SANS Institute 2002, p. 559). Research shows that nearly one in
every five businesses suffer major interference. Business continuity and business recovery
always serves to ensure that essential functions of business and its operations survive these
disruption. Most articles that have been published regarding disaster recovery and business
continuity with regards to information security have been published while most emphasize on the
general view of business continuity and disaster recovery while none has defined issues and
solutions in a way that can be utilized to manage day-to-day operations for information security.
Most of the publications that exists are expensive hence smaller businesses cannot acquire
considering that their budgets might be limited. The purpose of this article is to bridge this gap.

Literature Review.
A disaster recovery plan is designed to recover all crucial business process in case of a
disaster within the shortest time possible. It contains all the procedures about how to deal with
emergency situations. Most of the disaster recovery plans are technology oriented methods
whose goal is getting systems up within the shortest time possible. Risk avoidance is the most
recommended strategy to approach disaster recovery.
Business continuity plans entails activities that are required to keep organizational
processes running during interruptions of normal operations. A business continuity plan helps the
organization to provide its services even during the periods of disaster occurrences. With the aid
of this plan, an organizational services shall remain active during the crisis.
It is the responsibility of every individual organization to come up with a plan to counter
the impacts of disaster as a strategy to maintain its competitiveness. Based on the research that
was conducted by Janco Associates in 2016, it indicates that only 5% of the organizations are
adequately prepared for disasters.
Information security and disaster recovery plans determines the ability of a business to
survive. Based on the Global Benchmark study, at least 73% of the organizations lack disaster
recovery strategies. The report also states that more than 5 million losses are incurred as a result
of data center outages, critical application failure, and data losses among others (Kahan, 2014).
According to the Economist, there are massive losses incurred by organizations that are caused
by natural calamities. The figure 1 above shows the amount of losses that companies have
incurred as a result of natural disasters.
