BCP & DR
Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is an industry practice that companies rely on to create a prevention and recovery system from potential threats such as natural disasters, cyber-attacks, and other forms of business disruption. It is designed to protect corporate operational personnel and assets and make sure they can regain peak working conditions rapidly when disaster strikes. BCP is not new as a concept and has been integrated into various forms by most modern businesses in their planning and development stages since the early 2000s. It is now a mandatory component of every enterprise’s recovery plan.
A disaster recovery plan (DRP) is a documented, structured approach that describes how your organization can quickly resume work after an unplanned incident—for instance, the shutdown brought about by the COVID 19 pandemic. A DRP is applied specifically to those aspects of an organization that depends on a functional IT infrastructure24/7. DR aims to help an organization resolve data loss and recover system functionality so that it can perform in the aftermath of an incident, even if it operates at a minimal level.
