Business Continuity Planning

Business Continuity Planning is a service provided by DR/BC Services that documents the activities a department/business function will perform in the event of a loss of facility, people, technology, and supplier as a result of a disaster or significant business disruption in order to continue operations at an acceptable level within defined recovery objectives. Plans are designed using an all-hazard approach that addresses the impact of a loss as opposed to the cause.
