Business Continuity

Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery

Part of being proactive is planning for the worst case scenario or disaster. Having a plan in place makes the “worst case scenario” substantially easier to deal with because the key people know what needs to be done and tasks have been prioritized. We have helped companies build Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery plans for years. We have gone through mock situations to test those plans and we have had auditing firms and regulators review and critique those plans. Building and maintaining a business continuity plan and a disaster recovery plan was a very difficult task, but now, with the use of current techniques and technologies, creating, maintaining and testing a business continuity plan and disaster recovery plan are much more streamlined.

Business Continuity is a combination of proactive planning and documented processes to keep your business operating in the case of system failure, data loss or natural disasters. In laymen’s terms please? It’s leaps and bounds faster and more reliable than a backup! See the illustration below. Disaster Recovery is a set of policies and procedures to enable the recovery or continuation of technology, infrastructure and data following a disaster.
