An organization having a number of offices across a wide geographical area has developed a
disaster recovery plan. Using actual resources, which of the following is the MOST cost- effective
test of the disaster recovery plan?
Full operational test
A preparedness test is performed by each local office/area to test the adequacy of the
preparedness of local operations for disaster recovery. A paper test is a structured walk- through
of the disaster recovery plan and should be conducted before a preparedness test. A full
operational test is conducted after the paper and preparedness test. A regression test is not a
disaster recovery planning (DRP) test and is used in software maintenance.
