1. Part of a disaster recovery plan may make some assumptions about the state of services provided to the organization by third parties. In the event of a disaster as wide-spread as a major hurricane or typhoon, what are some of the steps that an organization should take to ensure its long-term viability? How does short-term recovery planning differ from long-term viability planning?

What other technologies can an organization put in place or leverage to support its operations? Pick an industry to focus on and think about what technologies and services might work best for that industry. What critical points of failure might still be present that limit the effectiveness of these tools?
