Alternative Processing Sites (2)
• Data processing company with seven offices
across Hyderabad, India, faces electricity
breakdowns in the city on weekly basis. The
breakdowns occur in one or two offices at a time
and last for 6-10 hour each time. The data
processed by the company must be processed
within two hours after it has been supplied by
the client’s system. Damages caused by
breakdowns are not large enough to justify
building autonomous power stations for each
office. All offices have equal probability to be
affected by the breakdown and possess identical
hardware and software.
Mobile site OR Reciprocal Agreement

through online sales to end-customers globally.

credit cards are processed on company’s
terminal, which is located in the company’s only
office in Shenzhen. Company’s annual turnover
is US$15M. The company would face the
following losses if the terminal is unavailable:

Alternative Processing Sites (5)
• Project Management company in Indonesia is
planning the mitigation strategy for the risk of a
major volcano eruption. Normally, in a case if a
disruptive event occurs, other offices nationwide
can support the operations in this office for two
weeks. In case if the volcano eruption occurs,
the company may be unable to return to the
main production site for several years.
Cold site

Backup Strategy (2)
• Company operates globally, 24/7, and has
inherent business requirements for a very
short RPO (less than a minute) and very
short RTO (minutes). Authorized changes
in the data occur 24/7, and touch a spectra
of systems, including numerous databases
and an array of log files.
Continuous backup

Conclusion on BCP (2)
• A copy of Business Continuity Plan must be
stored ONLY in secured places in the main
production facilities because being a confidential
document it should not be revealed to anyone
not directly involved in the execution of the plan.
• After an earthquake of magnitude 10, the
primary purpose of the organization is to recover
the business as soon as possible.
False: a copy must be stored off-site or/and in alternative
processing facilities
False: the primary purpose is to avoid human deaths; the
secondary purpose is to recover the business with minimum
total costs of recovery and losses due to unavailability

Conclusion on BCP (3)
• An alternative processing site must be clearly
marked so that it is easily identifiable by both
various emergency services (ambulance, fire
fighters etc.) and temporary support employees.
False: if it is easily identifiable for outsiders with good intents, it
is also easily identifiable for outsiders with bad intents
8
Conclusion on BCP (4)
• The alternative production site should comply
with the same security requirements as should
the main production site.
• Insurance CANNOT be obtained for anything
that may be the result of human error, intentional
or unintentional.
True: the functions and the information available at the
alternative site do not differ from those at regular site, so the
same security requirements should be applied to both
False: unintentional human errors may fall under several
insurance categories (e.g., errors and omissions, fidelity, etc.) if
the good practice standards are properly followed and
maintained
