Critical thinking
Please answer these questions.

1. Your small company (20 employees) has never had a disaster recovery plan but is now considering entering into a DRaaS contract with a major IT firm.

You are surprised when you hear a member of the disaster recovery planning group mention that once the contract is signed, the company’s worries are

over. How do you reply?

2. You are a senior manager for your firm and are responsible for leading the IT governance subcommittee. You just received a text message from a young

IT project manager whom you met last week. “We are at an off-site meeting with IBM, and following a review of its new ser- vice called the IBM Data

Governance Maturity Model Assessment, we will be signing a con- tract for this service. We’d like your input. Please call me on my cell phone as soon

as possible to discuss.” You were not aware of any effort in this area. How do you respond?
