Preparing the Continuity Plan

Part I 
write 400 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.
For this assignment, you will begin developing your continuity plan. The first step is to create a sentence outline of the various sections that will be included in your initial and final draft business continuity plan. 
Once you have reviewed the link above and understand what must be included in a sentence outline, create an outline that covers topics that you will include in the business continuity plan. The following are the topics that you must discuss:


Provides the purpose for the plan
Provides the different sections that the plan will contain

Risk Assessment

Discusses the identified risks
Discusses the completed risk assessment and mitigation strategies

Business Impact Analysis

Provide a summary of the business impact analysis
Discusses the business impact analysis worksheet

Resumption Strategies

Discuss data and application backup solutions
Discuss selected site resumption solutions

 Part II
create the initial draft of your business continuity plan (Key Assignment). This plan will contain all sections discussed in the outline you presented in the Phase 4 DB. In addition, you will create another section that will address incident response.
An incident response plan provides how an organization will react to a threat or hazard. It is important to note that incident response can take other names, such as emergency response. This section would contain the personnel identified to support the appropriate response to a given incident and what they are supposed to do. Obviously, this can be very detailed in scope because you must address a response for different types of incidents. For example, a response for a cyber threat would be different from a response to a tornado. This being said, for this assignment, you will address incident response from an information technology (IT) perspective.
