Don’t let disaster get in the way of business.
The goal of BCDR is to minimise risk and keep your business operating as close to normal after an unexpected disruption. A mix of high-level policies and technical infrastructure combine to reduce the risk of data loss, reputational damage, and operational downtime.
What is BCDR?
It’s the combination of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery, designed to make your business more resilient to and prepared for an array of threats, including natural disaster, human error, and cyber-attacks.
BC is proactive and refers to the processes and procedures
that your business must implement to ensure that operationally-critical functions can continue during and after a disaster.
BC typically focuses on the business as a whole and the high-level policies and planning geared toward long-term challenges.
Tactics: DR is more reactive and refers to the specific steps that your business must take to resume operations following an incident or disaster. Disaster recovery takes place after an incident.
DR focuses on the technical infrastructure needed to maintain or revive operations quickly, such as backups and remote data storage.
Why do you need BCDR?
There are many reasons to invest in BCDR, but we believe the key reasons are to protect three things that your business cannot survive without.
If the disaster strikes, what happens to your data? BCDR can protect your servers, files, PCs, and SaaS applications. If disaster strikes, your data will be retrievable and your business can maintain operations with minimal disruption.
A BCDR plan will protect your vital business operations from downtime or destruction in the event of a disaster. This means that your systems can continue to operate and sales revenue can continue to be generated.
Business reputation is built on being able to deliver on the promises made to customers, partners, and even suppliers. A BCDR plan will ensure that you can still deliver on those promises during and after a disaster.
