CISA Exam Preparation (Question 100)

(100) Which of the following is the MOST reasonable option for recovering a noncritical system?
A. Warm site
B. Mobile site
C. Hot site
D. Cold site


Explanation:
Generally a cold site is contracted for a longer period at a lower cost. Since it requires more time to make a cold site operational, it is generally used for noncritical applications. A warm site is generally available at a medium cost, requires less time to become operational and is suitable for sensitive operations. A mobile site is a vehicle ready with all necessary computer equipment that can be moved to any cold or warm site depending upon the need. The need for a mobile site depends uponthe scale of operations. A hot site is contracted for a shorter time period at a higher cost and is better suited for recovery of vital and critical applications.
