Business Continuity or Disaster Recovery?

What is the Difference?

Business Continuity is principally concerned with ensuring that the organisation’s business priorities are understood and adequately resourced in the event of a disruption that forces the business to change the way it operates, even if only on a temporary basis.

Disaster Recovery is principally concerned with ensuring that critical IT and communications systems and services are available to the business to support priority activities in the event of a disruption.

It is important to recognise that business continuity and disaster recovery need to operate in tandem, not in isolation. There is little point in ascertaining when a business critical activity needs to be operational following an incident if the IT services are not available to support those needs.
