Disaster recovery and incident response has become a necessity in today’s technological driven business world. A significant amount of consumer information is put into businesses information systems with the expectation to protect their private and financial data. This discussion addresses the importance of why organizations need effective disaster recovery and contingency planning. A foundation of knowledge is built through the understanding of the statistical and practical implications of disaster recovery and contingency planning. The practical implications will be understood through two separate case studies. Each case study is unique in that one addresses disaster recovery when facing a natural disaster, while the other is a cyber-attack of man-made origin. This discussion will allow conclusions to be drawn on why there is a need to plan for natural disasters and cyber-attacks separately. This will be accomplished through analyzing the case studies and their statistical properties.
