Abstract:


Continuity of services availability is critical in some business types such as banks, hospitals, and military institutions. However, this may be interrupted by either a natural disaster such as an earthquake, volcano, or a tornado. In addition, human negative interference such as hackers or terrorism may expose valuable resources to danger. Moreover, disasters may occur because of a network interruption, system crash, or electricity outage. Therefore, a disaster recovery plan is vital to provide the precautions necessary to minimize the negative effects that may occur as a result of a potential disaster. Many companies in the market provided solutions for disaster recovery to resume operations after a failure with the minimum losses. This paper studies the Cisco ® disaster recovery plan, and then performs a SWOT analysis on the provided solution.
