Correct Answer: A
Section: Compliance and Operational Security

Explanation:
A structured walkthrough test of a recovery plan involves representatives from each of the functional areas coming together to review the plan to determine if the plan pertaining to their area is accurate and complete and can be implemented when required.

Incorrect Answers:
B: In a full interruption test, operations are shut down at the primary site and shifted to the recovery site in accordance with the disaster recovery plan.
C: In a checklist test disaster recovery checklists are distributed to all members of a disaster recovery team. The members are asked to review the checklist. This ensures that the
checklist is still current, and that the assigned members of disaster recovery teams are still working for the company.
D: A tabletop exercise is a simulation of a disaster. A Tabletop Test is a test of the recovery plan in which actions are not actually performed.
