Subject: [PEN-TEST] Disaster Recovery


Does anyone know of a list serve that specializes in discussions
related to
Disaster Recovery of mainframe/client-server systems. Seems like
when we
think of IT security, disaster recovery is just not the current
hot topic.
However, with the rapid deployment of national computer
applications that
integrate with multiple data centers,  extranets, ISP's, VPN's,
etc..how do
you plan for disaster recovery??  To me, this is just as big of
a computer
security risk, as someone breaking into your computer systems.
Has it become
to complex?  Are we just playing down the issue?  In the old
days with
mainframe computers it was pretty straight forward..however

In my current job, I am a firewall administrator and also head
up a team for
the deployment of intrusion detection and penetration security
tools.  I am
still baffled that no one in IT seems to care much about
disaster recovery.
Maybe, I am just not hanging out with the right types of IT
folks.  However,
I have worked for a number of companies and disaster recovery,
just does not
seem to be an important issue when you think about computer
