comment Which BCP/DRP sections are solely related to the software vendor?
@SteveS: That's what we want to do. The question is, what parts of of the BCP/DRP plan can be imposed on the application itself? I'm not after a one-size-fits-all answer; a few examples will clear the fog.

comment Which BCP/DRP sections are solely related to the software vendor?
@SteveS: I totally agree with you, but I'm not in a position to change the premise. The project has been there for like a decade, and most premises are previously laid down. I've been only recently invited as a security consultant---another wrong decision, as it's very hard to "add" security to a system. Given the current situation, is it possible to answer the question?

TinyWall does not work on Windows XP. But after 3 years, I'm no longer working on Windows XP :)

comment Auditing, accounting, logging, and accountability… What's the difference?
@StephenBachelor: Thanks. It defines most of the terms I need. There's a caveat, however: the definitions are inclined more towards business and finance than security. For instance, "accounting" is used in terms like "cost accounting" or "yearly accounting period".
