Business continuity planning
A business continuity plan is sometimes referred to as a “disaster recovery plan” because it allows for the preservation of critical data and other elements of your business. Having a good contingency plan ensure you that downtime is limited to the minimum amount of time needed to get it back up and running. Protection of data is the other aspect of this. You must make sure that your customers’ data is safe and secure and it usually involves putting it in a remote location or a SkyDrive outside of your location in which the disaster occurred.
