Hey, everyone, welcome back to the course. So in the last video would talk briefly about the five layers of wrists again. Think of that like a cake. We want to talk about that bass being that external threats, those external things that can impact us like a tsunami, for example, and then all the way to layer one. Which is,
if you've seen the movie office space milk in from the movie office space and is a little cubicle and they keep piling boxes on him.
And if you've watched the movie spoiler alert, they also move into the basement and stack more boxes on him.
So this really and we're just gonna talk a little bit about
the recovery, part of disaster recovery planning. So we're to talk through the administrative as well as a technical things we need to kind of think through
so administrative wise, there's gonna be more of the policies, procedures like, What do we actually do? Do we have a B, C P in place? We have a D R P in place. What we're actually doing, who's managing things. How is our management team going to direct people to do the right things and the things that need to do to actually help us recover from this disaster
on the detective's technical side of things again going back to the data backups. We're gonna make sure that we're actually Beckham backing up the data appropriately for our organization to make sure that we can access that data. Whether that be financial data with the healthcare P h i. For patients to be able to actually treat them for these different diseases that they have,
That might be critical data. I p data that our company needs to actually produce products could be
plans to build this clicky remote thing. Right? So all these things we need to consider of what actually applies to our organization and how often
so we could still access that and also thinking through backup facilities, Right. So we talked earlier briefly about the technical backup. Right. So we talked about cold, warm and hot backup facility, so we need to think through Okay, what if my I t systems all get flooded out over here in our main facility?
Do we have another facility that our employees can go to? And if yes, what kind of facility Is that right? Do we already have systems up and running there? Do we have systems that can be up and running in a short period of time? Or is it completely cold? And we mean we didn't need to either get everything set up or even ship in
the different systems to get set up for our employees to be able to work. So these are all things we need to consider, and that's gonna be based off. Mostly
number one, the financials of your company. Do you have the money to run like a warm, warmer, hot site? And if not you made to consider a cold side were cloud backups. On the other side of that is what does our company actually do? Do we work with stuff that that it's that critical that we have? Ah, good example, is going to be a hospital right
hospital, losing power and not having backup generators. That's a big deal, right? People are on ventilators. People need medication. People are in Ivy's ivy pulls and getting the medication. That way. People need to be able to see obviously, right. We need the lights. The nurses need the lights, Doctor Steve likes to be able to navigate the halls. These are all things people need to do.
We need to regulate the temperature's right, especially in the operating room.
So we need power in the hospital. So we need. Thio obviously have a backup plan for the power, which most hospitals do, right? They got the backup generators that automatically kick in so they can have emergency
power to run critical operations. So these are things that based off our organization when you actually think through What do we actually need for our pretty particular company
to be successful in R, D R P and R B C P.
So in this video, we just talk briefly about recovery. So the disaster, a recovery plan. So the recovery part of that we talk through some of the basic things you need to think through again. You really have to tailor this stuff to your particular company Now. If you're an employee out there, that's just that's not involved in B, c p R D r p at all or even the business impact analysis. Really.
Just think through what happens in your day to day if something goes wrong, so Let's say you're a nurse watching this course right now.
What happens at that hospital doesn't have backup generators. Well, number one your patients that are critical, they're probably going to die because you don't have the battery power to actually sustain the oxygen. The infusions from the medication pump the ventilator to actually have them breathe. So as a nurse, how that impacts you,
it's number one. You're gonna be sitting there with the Ambu bag, breathing for the patient,
and you're gonna have to swap out his nurses every time somebody gets tired. The other thing that's gonna happen is a patient of the medications. Maybe it's a critical medication that's regulating their heart or something like that. They're not gonna be able to get that. So now you may have to actually do different relation on them. Well, what happens when the defibrillator can't be plugging
and now you can't give them the shocks they need that patients probably going to die at some point, right, because there's not power and the facility. So that's how it impacts you
as a regular worker in your particular company. And you may not be working as a nurse or a doctor and health care. But just take that as an example of how these things can actually apply to your day to day.
Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Planning
This course will provide students with an introduction to business continuity plans (BCP) and disaster recovery plans (DRP), the difference between them and the thought process towards performing a business impact analysis (BIA).
