Robert Davis Robert Davis Profile: Robert Davis

Business continuity and disaster recovery plans should follow suggested best practices for development to ensure adequate incident handling. Commonly, the primary goals of the incident management process are to restore a normal service operation as quickly as possible and to minimize the impact on business operations; thus ensuring that the best possible levels of service quality and availability are maintained.

As a sub-category, business interruption prevention plans and processes allow an entity to avoid, preclude, or limit the impact of a crisis occurring. Tasks included in such a prevention system should enable compliance with applicable laws, regulations, policies, procedures, rules and standards supporting avoidance, deterrence, and detection of potential catastrophic incidents — where incidents may encompass: local events like building fires, regional events like earthquakes, or national events like pandemic illnesses.
