Designing, Implementing, and Maintaining a Disaster Recovery Plan

by Christopher Rees

Disasters are never planned and can have an immense impact on a company's ability to conduct business and ultimately survive after the incident. Learning how to properly design and implement a disaster recovery plan is critical.

What you'll learn

Disasters can strike anytime, anywhere and for any reason. They can come from inside a company via a disgruntled employee, corporate spies or simple carelessness, or externally via natural disasters, terrorist attacks, acts of war, etc. In this course, Designing, Implementing, and Maintaining a Disaster Recovery Plan, you will learn the foundations of creating, implementing and maintaining a functional disaster recovery plan that can span multiple areas and address protecting a company's critical assets and infrastructure. First you will learn how to properly evaluate risks and threats as well as how to develop strategies to mitigate those risks. From there you will learn the various types of plans that are needed, covering administration, workplace, technical assets and even pandemic outbreaks. Finally, you'll learn the various methods to test these plans, from walk-through testing to full exercises that trigger a full fail-over to alternate sites. When you're finished this course you'll have the skills to work on disaster recovery planning that ensures your company's assets are protected and the company can continue to do business during and after a critical incident.
