Discuss security, disaster preparedness, and disaster recovery concerns for traditional and Web- based systems. Should this be a standard issue for all organizations?
In my opinion, security, disaster preparedness, and disaster recovery has become more important and at the same time more difficult with the time as we have moved from traditional to web-based systems. Traditional systems used to reside on host computers where there was a less chance of something going wrong because of security threats unless someone had physically accessed the system. In case of any disaster happening, these systems has specific protocols to follow to recover. But in the case of web-based systems, there are countless virtual threats on the internet. In case of any disaster a recovery mechanism might have to be developed from scratch.
I believe that security, disaster preparedness and disaster recovery must be a standard issue for all organizations. This is because the data related to the functioning of organizational systems need to be properly monitored in order to function efficiently and correctly.
