A. Fault tolerance
B. Succession planning
C. Business continuity testing
D. Recovery point objectives


Correct Answer: B
Section: Compliance and Operational Security

Explanation:
Succession planning outlines those internal to the organization that has the ability to step into positions when they open. By identifying key roles that cannot be left unfilled and associating internal employees who can step into these roles, you can groom those employees to make sure that they are up to speed when it comes time for them to fill those positions.
Incorrect Answers:
A: Fault tolerance refers to the ability of a system to sustain operations in the event of a component failure.
C: Business Continuity testing is mainly concerned with the processes, policies, and methods that an organization uses to minimize the impact any type of failure would have and to make sure that the business continues.
D: Recovery point objectives define the point at which the system needs to be restored and usually matches the status quo prior to failure.
