My course is DEM557 for Continuity Operations in Public & Private Sectors at Park University. This is week 2 in my class. Below is my instructor’s instructions:
Starting in week 2 (and week 4 and 6) you have a written essay due. The final project is to either review an existing Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP), or if you do not have access to one, pick an organization and discuss what the COOP would look like.
There are many parts to a COOP. Each module essay (2, 4, and 6) should be research done that you can use for your final project. I am not a fan of making students do research and not utilize it. The first essay may be on an agency or organization you want to use for your final project. Discuss the organization and why they would need a COOP. Another module essay may be on what hazards and vulnerabilities impact your chosen organization or agency.
Each essay should be a part of your final paper – utilize parts of each module essay to build your analysis of a existing COOP or tell me what you think the organization or agency you picked would need in a COOP and back it up with your research.
