Abstract:

This thesis will analyze a disaster recovery plan currently in use at a selected DOD computer facility, as well as investigate facility contingency planning documents actually tested during recent natural disasters. The primary goal of this thesis is to measure the effectiveness of two selected DOD facilities disaster recovery plans following significant natural disasters, and to study what characteristics of these planning documents were most useful to facility personnel. Equally as important is the analysis of why established plans, or portions of those plans were less than effective. From this appraisal, advantages, disadvantages and lessons learned should assist DOD information managers in identifying and correcting potential weaknesses in their disaster recovery plans.
