Business continuity management is an organization’s ability to ensure operations and main business functions are not impacted by a disaster or an incident that take critical processes and products offline. Business continuity planning is an interdepartmental process, often led by information technology and includes implementing the plans used to restore normal business in a set amount of time. It also helps to define the amount of data loss acceptable to the business and sustains communication between the organizational stakeholders during and following incidents. Resilience is defined as an organization’s ability to maintain acceptable service levels and to manage disruptions to its critical processes and the IT systems which support them. Disaster Recovery involves a set of policies, tools and procedures to enable the recovery or continuity of technological infrastructure and systems following a disaster. Disaster recovery focuses on the IT or technology systems supporting critical business functions while business continuity involves keeping all essential aspects of a business functioning despite disruptive events.
