Q1. Your organization hosts a web site with a back-end database server. During a recent power outage, the server crashed, resulting in a significant amount of lost data. Which of the following can your organization implement to prevent this loss from occurring again?

A. Redundancy

B. Disaster recovery procedures

C. Warm site

D. Higher RTO

A is correct. Server redundancy solutions such as a failover cluster would prevent this type of loss.

Additionally, a power redundancy solution such as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) would prevent this.

Disaster recovery procedures help restore the systems after a disaster, but they wouldn’t prevent the incident.

A warm site is as an alternate site, but it wouldn’t prevent data loss.

The recovery time objective (RTO) identifies the time period when you plan to restore a system after an outage, but it doesn’t prevent a loss.

Q2. Your organization is working on its business continuity plan. Management wants to ensure that documents provide detailed information on what technicians should do after an outage. Specifically, they want to list the systems to restore and the order in which to restore them. What document includes this information?

A. HVAC

B. BIA

C. DRP

D. Succession plan

C is correct. The disaster recovery plan (DRP) typically includes a hierarchical list of critical systems that identifies what to restore and in what order.

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) is not a document.

The business impact analysis (BIA) identifies critical systems and components but does not include recovery methods or procedures.

Succession planning refers to people, not systems, and it clarifies who can make decisions during a disaster.
