What is Business Continuity?

Disruptions come in many forms—major or minor, planned or unplanned. Whether your organization needs to complete an office move, prepare for a looming storm or get back to work following an earthquake or fire, you need a way to keep business operations up and running. Datacenter failover and disaster recovery are only part of the picture. Workforce continuity is just as important—making sure people have access to the applications, files and collaboration tools their productivity depends on. Business continuity management helps your organization plan for these scenarios, so you can protect against consequences like lost productivity, lost revenue and reputation damage.
