Disaster Recovery Plan
A disaster recovery provides detailed strategies on the steps that employees must follow during, and immediately after a disaster.
Business Continuity Plan
The business continuity plan takes the disaster recovery plan one step further. This plan outlines how the business will continue its operations after a disaster. It also outlines how the business will continue its operations after smaller, less disastrous events, such as power outages. The plan outlines how and where the business will operate if it is forced to move to a temporary location. It identifies the long-term, crucial strategies that are needed to ensure that the business maintains stability and generates profits. For your company’s network, that may include locating off-site backups or articulating escalation procedures after a server failure.
