Abstract:

This thesis sets out the basic elements that constitute disaster recovery plans for information systems in DOD based upon a review of private industry plans and DOD requirements. From these elements, a model of a disaster recovery plan is proposed. One of the disaster recovery plans used by the U. S. Marine Corps is presented for comparison to the model plan. A disaster planning checklist to organize and schedule future work in developing a plan and an outline of the U. S. Marine Corps plan are provided. Conclusions are drawn from the comparison and recommendations are put forth for DOD disaster recovery planning to protect information systems.
