Examine the primary and secondary impacts of an interruption in normal operations in a business impact analysis (BIA) for the risks identified. Use a chart to represent your BIA. Click here to access the BIA template.
Create a fault-tolerant, secured, and highly available disaster recovery plan in which you include cloud components. Depict graphically the network architecture layout of your plan using Visio or an open source tool such as Dia. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.
Develop a business continuity plan for the risks you have identified in Question 1.
Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
