The cost of ongoing operations when a disaster recovery plan is in place, compared to not having
a disaster recovery plan, will MOST likely:
remain the same.
Due to the additional cost of disaster recovery planning (DRP) measures, the cost of normal
operations for any organization will always increase after a DRP implementation, i.e., the cost of
normal operations during a nondisaster period will be morethan the cost of operations during a
nondisaster period when no disaster recovery plan was in place.
