Business continuity is the ability of an organisation to maintain essential functions during as well as after a disaster has occurred, ensuring recovery with as little downtime and loss of income as possible. A business continuity plan considers various unpredictable events, such as natural disasters, fires, disease outbreaks, cyber attacks and other external threats.
Business continuity planning is important for organisations of any size, the plan establishes risk management processes and procedures that aim to prevent interruptions to mission-critical services, and re-establish full function to the organisation as quickly and smoothly as possible.
According to many experts, the first step in business continuity planning is deciding which of an organisation’s functions are essential and allocating the available budget accordingly. Once crucial components have been identified, failover mechanisms can be put in place.
