After an assessment, auditors recommended that an application hosting company should contract with
additional data providers for redundant high speed Internet connections. Which of the following is MOST likely
the reason for this recommendation? (Choose two.)
To allow load balancing for cloud support
To allow for business continuity if one provider goes out of business
To eliminate a single point of failure
To allow for a hot site in case of disaster
To improve intranet communication speeds
A high-speed internet connection to a second data provider could be used to keep an up-to-date replicate of the
main site. In case of problem on the first site, operation can quickly switch to the second site. This eliminates
the single point of failure and allows the business to continue uninterrupted on the second site.
Note: Recovery Time Objective
The recovery time objective (RTO) is the maximum amount of time that a process or service is allowed to be
down and the consequences still be considered acceptable. Beyond this time, the break in business continuity
is considered to affect the business negatively. The RTO is agreed on during BIA creation.
