What Are BCP and DR Services? Why Are They Crucial for Your Business?

Business Continuity Plans (BCP) and Disaster Recovery (DR) are often mislabeled as the same term and they are also, at times, referred interchangeably. But that’s not the case, the objectives and functioning of BCP and DR differentiates substantially from each other. What’s similar is that in case of a catastrophe both, BCP and DR strategies play a vital role in safeguarding your business. Let’s delve deeper into how Business Continuity Plans (BCP) and Disaster Recovery (DR) work.

Business Continuity Plans (BCP):

As the name indicate, BCP ensures that your critical business operations can still function before, during and after a disaster. It’s basically a strategy developed to maintain business operations, so that your business never comes to a total shutdown.

To implement BCP, you’ve to assess and prioritize your business operations to figure out which operations needs to be up and running and if the remaining ones can be suspended, during the period of disaster. The BCP involves technical as well as manual resources. The involved workers should be trained on how to execute the crucial operations during emergencies.

Disaster Recovery (DR):

DR is a subset of the BSP strategy. It focuses more on the technical aspects of the business such as the recovery of critical data and applications. DR also aims to get the paused/stopped technical operations running in the shortest time possible, after the disaster.

Implementing DR also takes planning and training of the involved resources, beforehand. DR can stand out as an independent disaster management plan for your business, but it works more efficiently if teamed up with BCP.

What is the need?

Disasters are quite unfortunate and can range from a small technical corruption to a giant earthquake. If you’re not prepared the loss can be devastating. Many businesses go bankrupt or even in debt after a disaster hits, and it’s hard or almost impossible for most of them to recover from the loss. So, being ready is the only smart option there is when it comes to facing disasters.

The Business Continuity Plans (BCP) and Disaster Recovery (DR) services are of utmost importance and shouldn’t be neglected or overlooked.
