Cybersecurity DR / BCP
Presentation (10 points total)
focus of this assignment should be DR /
BCP technology solutions for response and recovery after a cyber security
incident of sufficient duration and impact to require activation of the
organization’s Disaster Recovery and/or Business Continuity Plan.
focus upon the incident reported upon in your cybersecurity research paper OR
you may take a more general approach.
technology solutions include:
General DR/BCP Services
Data Backup Solutions
Cloud Computing (Infrastructure as a Service,
Software as a Service, Platform as a Service)

Discuss the importance of disaster recovery
and/or business continuity planning with respect to maintaining the
confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and information
Identify three commercially available technology
solutions (products or services) which could be used to address cybersecurity
problems specific to DR / BCP. Use the five pillars of information assurance
(confidentiality, integrity, availability, authenticity, non-repudiation) when
identifying a DR/BCP issue as a cybersecurity problem. Examples: loss of integrity (damaged backup
tapes), loss of availability (servers
can’t be accessed due to power loss), etc.
Research and report upon each of the three technology
solutions. For each solution include:
Vendor (name and Web site)
Product Name and Capabilities
How this product or service can be used to
support DR / BCP including protecting / restoring confidentiality, integrity,
and availability of information and information systems, etc.
Provide a summary in which you discuss the
benefits of incorporating technology-based solutions when planning for recovery
and restoral of IT operations.
