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