CISA Exam Preparation (Question 97)

(97) Which of the following recovery strategies is MOST appropriate for a business having multiple offices within a region and a limited recovery budget?
A. A hot site maintained by the business
B. A commercial cold site
C. A reciprocal arrangement between its offices
D. A third-party hot site


Explanation:
For a business having many offices within a region, a reciprocal arrangement among its offices would be most appropriate. Each office could be designated as a recovery site for some other office. This would be the least expensive approach to providing an acceptable level of confidence. A hot site maintained by the business would be a costly solution but would provide a high degree of confidence. Multiple cold sites leased for the multiple offices would lead to a costly solution with a high degree of confidence. A third-party facility for recovery is provided by a traditional hot site. This would be a costly approach providing a high degree of confidence.
