Business continuity and disaster recovery plan – do I need it?
Business continuity PLan vs disaster recovery
BCP and disaster recovery are often used interchangeably. But they describe two different approaches a business take to restore in the event of a disaster.
The Business Continuity Plan (BCP) focus on how the business can continue to operate during a disruptive event. A disaster recovery plan (DRP) is a more focused, specific part of a BCP and refers to the steps and technologies for recovering from a disruptive event.
Why you need BCP and disaster recovery
A business continuity plan (BCP) helps your company to survive and continue running after a disruption or disaster.
It emphasises the key tasks to mitigate risks that can lead to your business shutting down. The BCP aims to protect critical business functions so you can continue operating.
Creating a business continuity plan is by no means a simple task. From determining your business processes to essential resources and contingency planning. Testing the plan is also important so you know for sure the plan works.
