Continued Assessments During a Disaster

The graduate assesses needs, threats, and solutions prior to and during a network disaster.

Introduction


Disaster
planning can help eliminate and reduce the potential for economic
damage, loss of life, and destruction of property during a disaster.
This task will focus on the recovery phase of the disaster recovery
cycle.

Imagine you have been hired as a disaster recovery
trainer. Your job is to respond to a scenario that requires individuals
being trained to evaluate a simulated disaster response. The simulated
organization and disaster are outlined in the attached “LPHG Disaster
Recovery Scenario.” The organization’s plans, policies and impact
analysis are attached as well (“LPHG Backup and Recovery Policy,” “LPHG
Business Impact Analysis,” “LPHG Disaster Recovery Plan”).

Requirements


  1. Using the attached “After Action Report Survey Template,” create an after action report (AAR) by doing the following:
    1. Discuss
      the plans, procedures, or other documents that were in place before the
      disaster in the General Information section of the template.
    2. Summarize what occurred during the response in the scenario in the General Information section of the template.
    3. Identify three strengths of the disaster response in the scenario.
    4. Analyze the strengths of the disaster response in the scenario by doing the following:
      1. Discuss the contributing factors of each of the three strengths.
        1. Discuss how the organization’s plans, policies, and impact analysis contributed to each strength.
      2. Discuss positive consequences of each of the three strengths.
      3. Recommend ways to improve on each of the three strengths.
    5. Identify three areas of improvement of the disaster response in the scenario.
    6. Analyze the areas for improvement of the disaster response in the scenario by doing the following:
      1. Discuss the contributing factors of each of the three areas for improvement.
        1. Discuss how the organization’s plans, policies, and documents contributed to each of the three areas for improvement.
      2. Discuss consequences of each of the three areas for improvement.
      3. Recommend
        changes to the response plan (e.g., plans, procedures, equipment,
        training, mutual aid support, management, and leadership support) that
        could resolve the causes of each of the three areas for improvement.
  2. When you use sources, include all in-text citations and references in APA format.

    Note: Provided documents do not require citation.

Discuss consequences of each of the three areas for improvement.

d. Recommend changes to the response plan (e.g., plans, procedures, equipment, training, mutual aid support, management, and leadership support) that could resolve the causes of each of the three areas for improvement.B. When you use sources, include all in-text citations and references in APA format.Contact the WGU Center for Writing Excellence https://sites.google.com/a/wgu.edu/cwe/*You will only need to turn in the After Action Report. You will need to fill in all of the blanks in the AAR that has been provided to you in TaskStream. To avoid deficiencies, each response should be provided in complete sentences in the template ‘cells’.You will use the additional supporting documents provided as part of the Task Scenario.The documents provided may not have been fully completed for this scenario; however, they are documents you will need to consider as you work through this task.Plans are the processes you will follow. Policies are the protocols you will follow that are created from planning. Documents are the documents that detail the plans and policies that were followed. Do your best to identify withinthe scenario, where any of these documents contributed to a strength, or are needed for improvement.Responses of ‘None” or “document does not exist” or “N/A” is not an acceptable entry into the template. *Document names should be listed prior to using its acronym.You must not state the document alone. You must include thecorrect name of the document and provide the supporting information within the template entry. Submitting the document name only for an entry into the template will not be an acceptable response.This task requires critical thinking. Review the LPHG Disaster Recover Scenario to identify the strengths and areasfor improvement. Use the documents as your supporting criteria/contributing factors.
