Managing challenges within our communities today is no easy task. The myriad of threats, both physical and digital, make it almost impossible to dodge every disaster. After all, it can be challenging to avoid system irregularities when mother nature calls or when a cybercriminal tricks one of your employees into exploiting information.
Whatever the disaster, it’s essential to have a proper Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) plan in place for adequate protection.
Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR) are two separate practices that go hand in hand.
Business continuity is all about establishing plans and procedures to ensure an organization is prepared in case an adverse event happens. Said plans will minimize the impact of a natural disaster or cyber attack and help an organization remain functional with little disruption to its workflow.
With disaster recovery comes the specific steps to execute business continuity plans following an incident. DR is geared toward managing technological infrastructure during a crisis while BC is all about surviving long-term impacts and navigating success post-disaster.
Having an effective BCDR plan can be the difference between surviving an adverse event or having to stop workflows completely, whether it be on a temporary or permanent basis. As previously mentioned, the goal of BCDR is to minimize the impact of a disaster including those related to:
While business continuity and disaster recovery are separate terms, they have been combined to encourage ongoing collaboration between organizations and technology executives for response planning efforts. Formulating a team of people who know an organization’s goals (leadership) alongside experts to give proper technology advice and suggestions (technology executives) is the optimal path for BCDR efforts.
It’s always a good idea to review your plan every 6 months to 1 year to ensure relevancy with any new threats. Don’t wait for a disaster to strike before thinking about business continuity and disaster recovery.
