Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

How are business continuity and disaster recovery connected?

Disaster recovery focuses on the formulation of a strategy that allows a company to take preventive measures during a disaster. It enables companies to protect themselves from situations that can cause damage to the business in varied ways.

A disaster recovery plan acts as a safeguard and protects businesses from unpredicted circumstances. A business continuity plan aims at streamlining the flow of operations or processes after any damage or disaster. It helps in the implementation of a strategy that doesn't affect business activities and operations, and ensures smooth functioning within an organization.
