Every organization faces the possibility of major and minor disruptions of all kinds, from planned events such as IT maintenance and office relocations, to looming emergencies such as hurricanes, snow storms and epidemics, to unplanned events that strike completely without warning, such as earthquakes, tornados, terrorism and fires. Even relatively small incidents like a water or power outage,
commute delays and the seasonal flu can have a major impact.
While business continuity planning has traditionally focused on planning failover and high availability of mission-critical business systems, this is only part of the picture. To keep the business up and running, organizations must take a more comprehensive approach encompassing both organizational measures and technologies to minimize disruption, maintain security, and support uninterrupted productivity for users and teams.
