Understanding the Objectives
Planning for business continuity and business recovery of the organization in the aftermath of a disaster is an involved and complex undertaking. It is a task best tackled using the Business Recovery Team concept.
Preparation for, response to, and recovery from a disaster affecting the business and its administrative, financial and information technology functions requires the cooperative efforts of all departments and personnel across the entire organization.
In order to mitigate business risk and ensure the proper and on-going functioning of business technology during and after a business disaster, every business should have an effective and efficient business recovery plan.
It is important to understand that business recovery planning is an on-going process of planning, developing, testing and implementing key business strategies to ensure the timely resumption of vital business functions in the event a disaster befalls the company itself or the surrounding community.
