BUSINESS CONTINUITY

Business continuity is a wide-ranging subject that analyzes all aspects of how a business maintains service to its customers when faced with an unexpected disaster. When creating a business continuity plan, companies must trade off the cost of the additional required infrastructure such as hardware, software, telecommunications, and buildings, against the risks, such as the costs of a prolonged outage. As a result, systems that are critical to the business and those for which there is a legal requirement are the top priorities.


Business continuity is not something implemented at the time of a disaster; Business Continuity refers to those activities performed daily to maintain service, consistency, and recoverability. The foundation of business continuity are the standards, program development, and supporting policies; guidelines, and procedures needed to ensure a firm to continue without stoppage, irrespective of the adverse circumstances or events. All system design, implementation, support, and maintenance must be based on this foundation in order to have any hope of achieving business continuity, disaster recovery, or in some cases, system support. Business continuity is sometimes confused with disaster recovery, but they are separate entities


Disaster recovery is a small subset of business continuity, which may include restoring servers or mainframes with backups, re-establishing private branch exchanges or provisioning local area networks (LANs) to meet immediate business needs.
