This section deals with the issues of business continuity and recovery after disasters. The authors analyzed standards, laws, and regulations pertaining to the parameters of periodic monitoring and recovery in information systems. This section includes mathematical models of resources and environment periodic monitoring as well as periodic backup and recovery after interruptions or disasters. The work demonstrates that the well-known deterministic periodic monitoring and backup models do not take into account stochastic peculiarities of ergatic systems to the full extent. The authors developed new stochastic models of restricted monitoring and backup that allow taking into consideration resources constrains and random factors of information systems operation. The notion of Bernoulli stream has been introduced. This section suggests the criteria for selecting deterministic or stochastic monitoring and backup models and their combinations. A solution of direct and reverse task of the calculation of control and monitoring procedures frequency is offered. This section also provides a methodology for information system stability management, considering periodic monitoring, rollback, and recovery in case of interruption.
