Auditing Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery – Part II

Robert Davis Robert Davis Profile: Robert Davis

For most professionals, business continuity planning refers to the process for developing advance arrangements and procedures enabling an entity to respond to service interruptions in such a manner that critical business functions continue at projected levels. In other words, business continuity planning is the act of proactively strategizing a method to prevent, if possible, and manage, if necessary, the consequences of a disaster; while limiting crisis consequences to the extent that an entity can absorb the impact. As a result, though it often ranks in the lower-half in importance, business continuity planning is on most top-ten governance lists of strategic entity issues.
