Your business is dependent on resources, personnel and daily tasks to stay healthy, happy and profitable. Whether it’s a disruption caused by a natural disaster or the sudden failure of a critical server, thorough business continuity planning (BCP) and disaster recovery (DR) planning are essential. Many businesses are prone to minimizing the importance of adequate BCP/DR planning because disaster seems like an improbably event. Don’t let your business make this mistake. Perhaps you’ve put some thought into common scenarios, such as prolonged power outages, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, etc. But what about more frequent scenarios, such as unexpected departure of key personnel, supply chain problems or other similar challenges?
What’s the difference between BCP and DR?
DR aims to minimize the effects of a disaster by taking the necessary steps to ensure that the resources, personnel and business processes are able to resume operation in a timely manner. BCP provides methods and procedures for addressing long-term outages and service disruptions to enable the business to continue operating and meeting its customer obligations.
What is an all-hazards approach?
An all-hazards approach ensures that all types of scenarios are accounted for, including natural, organizational, technical and/or human threats.
