Management considered two projections for its business continuity plan; plan A with two months to
recover and plan B with eight months to recover. The recovery objectives are the same in both
plans. It is reasonable to expect that plan B projected higher:
Since the recovery time is longer in plan B, resumption and recovery costs can be expected to be
lower. Walkthrough costs are not a part of disaster recovery. Since the management considered a
higher window for recovery in plan B, downtime costs included in the plan are likely to be higher.
