WHAT IS BUSINESS CONTINUITY?
Business continuity planning is performed by an organization to assure that their technology will remain 100% operational in the face of a man-made or natural disaster.
Whether a company offers professional services or produces multi-function widgets, they use technology to operate. The loss of technology at any time can impact business relationships and the company’s bottom line. In fact, in the past two years, over 50 percent of businesses experienced an unforeseen interruption, and the vast majority (81%) of these interruptions caused the business to close one or more days.
Business continuity planning addresses the potential for these situations in advance. With some careful pre-planning, businesses can remain profitable and effective even in the face of a man-made or natural disaster and any accompanying outages.
