The importance of a Disaster Recovery Plan/Business Continuity Plan (DRP/BCP)

Develop a capstone project that includes the following sections: A. Abstract (suggested length of 200 words) 1. Summarize the most important points of the project. Include the following in your summary: • Business/IT problem under investigation Plan • Research methodology • Implementation proposal • Proposed and actual outcomes B. Introduction 1. Summarize the capstone’s highlights. Include the following in your summary: • Project scope, including problem definition • Defense of the solution • Methodology justification • Explanation of the organization of the capstone report C. Systems and Process Audit 1. Explain the audit that occurred prior to the project design and development phase • Audit details • Clear problem statement • Problem causes • The business impact of the problem on various organizational units • Cost analysis • Risk analysis D. Detailed and Functional Requirements 1. Explain what is required to execute the project. Include the following in your explanation: • Functional (end-user) requirements • Detailed requirements • Existing gaps that a successful project would fill E. Project Design 1. Create a project plan to design, develop, test, your plan: • Scope • Assumptions • Project Phases • Timelines • Dependencies • Resource requirements • Risk factors • Important milestones
include the following information in your explanation:
and implement a solution that addresses the problem statement. Include the following information in

• Deliverables F. Methodology 1. Explain your approach to resolving the problem. Include the following in your explanation: • Different potential approaches for project phases • Shortcomings (if any) in your approach 2. Defend your approach. Include the following points in your defense: • Justification of the scalability of the chosen approach • Justification of the long-term success of the chosen approach a Project Development 1. Explain the process of developing your project. Include the following in your explanation: • Hardware • Software • Tech Stack • Architecture details 2. Justify the resources used. 3. Discuss the final output. H. Quality Assurance 1. Discuss your approach to quality assurance. Include the following in your discussion: • Specify the quality assurance criteria. 2. Explain how you tested your solution. Include the following in your explanation: • The justification for test cases and scenarios • Acceptance criteria I. Implementation Plan 1. Discuss the plan for implementing the project. Include the following in your discussion: • Strategy for the implementation • Phases of the rollout • Details of the go-live • Dependencies (if any) • Deliverables • Training plan for users J. Risk Assessment 1. Discuss quantitative and qualitative risks associated with your solution. 2. Develop a cost/benefit analysis for each risk by addressing the following: • The risk of a benefit shortfall and what a shortfall will cost (e.g., If you predict a 50% decrease in malicious attacks on a particular system, what is the cost of not meeting that benefit level?) • The risk of a cost overrun and its consequences (e.g., Would a cost overrun result in forced reduced staffing?) 3. Explain how you would mitigate these risks. Include the following in your explanation: • Rollback plan
• Alternatives to the original implementation plan, with the pros and cons of each
