Business Continuity vs Disaster Recovery
Planning for the unexpected is essential for all businesses—roughly 40 to 60 percent of small businesses experiencing a disaster never reopen. When planning for these unexpected events, companies typically look to create a business continuity plan and/or a disaster recovery plan. But what is the difference between the two?
The terms Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery are not interchangeable though many seem to think otherwise. Disaster Recovery (DR) versus Business Continuity (BC) are two entirely different strategies, each of which plays a significant aspect in safeguarding business operations.
