What is Business Continuity?

Trying to define business continuity isn’t always easy. Everyone seems to have a unique definition these days. Depending on how your business operates, you may think about it a lot differently than the guy next to you.

Let’s start by defining what business continuity is NOT.

No backups

Business Continuity is not equal to Data Backup

A data backup is the result of copying or archiving files and folders for the purpose of being able to restore them in case of data loss. Data loss can be caused by many things ranging from computer viruses to hardware failures to file corruption to fire, flood, or theft (etc).

Business Continuity is not Disaster Recovery

Data recovery

Disaster recovery is the area of security planning that deals with protecting an organization from the effects of significant negative events.

You may be scratching your head at this point, saying, “But those things make up my business continuity plan?!” You are 100% correct, data backup and disaster recovery most certainly contribute to your business continuity plan. But the two should never stand alone!
