Business Continuity and IT Availability – Part II

Robert Davis Robert Davis Profile: Robert Davis

Minimally, an entity’s IT governance program should address business continuity and IT availability requirements within the context of ensuring continuous service. As suggested by ISACA, a business continuity plan (BCP) assumes the role for advance planning and preparations necessary to minimize loss and ensure continuity of critical business functions in the event of a disaster. Whereby, disaster recovery planning is a key BCP component referring to the technological aspects of a BCP that encompasses consistent actions to be undertaken before, during and after a catastrophe. Sound disaster recovery preparation is forged through a comprehensive planning system, involving all of the entity’s business processes.
