Business Continuity & IT Disaster Recovery

  • Introduction

    What is Business Continuity and IT Disaster Recovery?

    You might ask, are they one and the same? Nope. Whilst they do go hand in hand and are closely related, they are different things.

    Business continuity is ensuring your business has a plan to continue to function in the face of adversity, managing risk and trying to prevent things from derailing the business such as implementing resilient IT solutions so in the event of a failure of a component or a cyber attack, ensuring the business continues to function.

    IT Disaster recovery is what it sounds like, the ability to recover from a disaster that has affected the business such as fire or flood.

  • The solution

    Working Together to Provide Business Continuity and Ensure IT Disaster Recovery for Your Business

    Business continuity is about mitigation and IT disaster recovery is about bringing IT systems back online which is why they go hand in hand together and it is why businesses should always have a business continuity plan and a IT disaster recovery plan and for them to be regularly tested to ensure that should the worst happen, the business will just carry on as per normal and hopefully no one will even know there has been a disaster.
