Frequently Asked Questions

What is business continuity?

What is business continuity?

Business continuity refers to an organization’s ability to ensure that operations and core business processes remain up and running in the event of a natural disaster, cyberattack, or unplanned outage. Business continuity plans usually include the following objectives:

  • Restoring normal business operations within a certain period of time
  • Defining an acceptable amount of data loss
  • Communicating with stakeholders during and after critical events

A variety of different events can cause business disruptions, from small power outages to hardware breakdowns. While you can’t be ready for everything, business continuity plans and software help MSPs protect themselves and their customers from the most common disasters and situations.

What is the difference between business continuity and disaster recovery?

What is the difference between business continuity and disaster recovery?

Business continuity and disaster recovery are two closely related concepts, but they’re not exactly the same. The difference between the two can be boiled down to timing.

Business continuity refers to the ability to keep business operations up and running in the event of a disaster. A business continuity plan uses concrete steps to define how an organization will go about maintaining full functionality if disaster strikes.

Disaster recovery, on the other hand, is more focused on restoring full functionality after an event has occurred. Disaster recovery includes procedures for recovering any business-critical files or data and restarting any applications, servers, or operating systems after an event. Disaster recovery is a core component of business continuity and plays a key role in data protection.

Why is business continuity important?

Why is business continuity important?

Business continuity is important because it helps ensure that your organization stays operational as you work to resolve unexpected issues, which is key to maintaining strong relationships with customers. Disruptions can happen at any time and for a wide variety of reasons—but if your business stays down for a prolonged period of time, your customers might take their business elsewhere. As such, having a business continuity plan boosts your company’s reputation and helps build strong customer relationships.

Other benefits of business continuity include:

  • Boosting morale and employee productivity
  • Helping to demonstrate compliance requirements
  • Saving time and money during an unplanned event
  • Improving communication, technology, and security via continuity planning
