What is Business Continuity?
Business continuity is about ensuring your business’ mission-critical operations can continue to operate following a disaster situation.
A business continuity plan outlines a business’s procedure to continue operating when an unplanned disruption impacts its ability to provide services. Disaster recovery is a subset of business continuity planning, which covers all possible affected parts of a business including, a plan for business processes, assets, human resources, and business partners.
Why do you need a business continuity plan?
Problems can occur for businesses when they least expect them. Whether that’s a technological problem, such as a cyber-attack or data breach, an issue with your business’s supply chain, or even a natural disaster.
Whatever the problem may be, without a business continuity plan in place, there is potential that the problem could seriously harm your business.
A cloud business continuity plan allows you to restore critical services quickly – this can be as fast as minutes or hours – and ensure that normal operations can resume.
