Executive Summary

If you are an IT disaster recovery manager, you most likely have disaster recovery plans in place that provide for recovery of critical business applications and the systems to support those applications. What processes and criteria were used to determine the recovery time objectives (RTO ? the time to recover the system after a disaster) and recovery point objectives (RPO ? time passed since last backup prior to a disaster) for those systems? Do you look at the recovery of the critical business processes or only focus on the recovery of the systems?
