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 certain measures during the time of a disaster. It enables companies to confront or protect themselves from the situations that can cause damage to the business in a number of ways. Disaster recovery plan acts as a safeguard and protects businesses from any unpredicted circumstances. A business continuity plan aims to streamline the flow of operations or processes after the damage or disaster has occurred. It helps in the implementation of a strategy that doesn't affect the business activities even after the business has been hit by a major disaster. It also ensures smooth functioning within the organizations.
