BCM Planning Methodology:Business Continuity Strategy

Think of Business Continuity Strategy as:

  • A conceptual summary of recovery processes that must be carried out between the occurrence of a disaster and the time when normal operations are restored.
  • An alternate processing or interim ability to process data and continue providing critical service while a full recovery of the primary site is underway.


When attempting to design an IT DR strategy, an organisation needs to understand what disaster recovery is and how it differs from a backup strategy.

Data backup is an important component of disaster recovery, but it requires a much broader understanding of how to restore your IT environment should a disaster occur.
