Robert Davis Robert Davis Profile: Robert Davis

After a catastrophic incident or event; losing the capability to process, retrieve, and protect information maintained electronically can significantly affect an entity’s ability to accomplish its mission. For this reason, an entity should have: (1) controls in place to protect information assets as well as minimize the risk of unplanned interruptions, and (2) a plan to recover critical operations should interruptions occur. Consequently, these plans should consider the activities performed at general support facilities, such as data processing centers and telecommunications facilities, as well as the activities performed by users of specific resources.
