The purpose of the project is to create an incident response/disaster recovery document that can be used by your organization in the event of a perceived or potential threat that may harm your business or employees. First, make sure it is a credible solution since a hurricane disaster plan for a business in Michigan is about as realistic as a loss of power due to a major snow storm at sea level in Hawaii. Yes, it could happen, but the likelihood is very slim. Second, it should be a threat that has a potential for happening such as mechanical failure, natural disaster, human caused and so on. Lastly, make sure it is a business and a geographic location you are familiar with to make this a worthwhile exercise.
Examples of incidents could include, but not be limited to;
Malicious Virus infects a computer
Employee Destruction of Critical Information
ISP provider goes down
City-wide Power Outage
Physical break-in with damage and/or theft of major equipment

The goal of creating this PowerPoint would be to give a 10 minute presentation. A 10 minute presentation is probably about 8 to 12 slides…not that big of a deal, right? 5 slides will not cut it and 20 slides is way too long.
