Business Continuity Planning:
Business continuity planning (BCP) is “planning which identifies the organization's exposure to internal and external threats and synthesizes hard and soft assets to provide effective prevention and recovery for the organization." In plain language, BCP is working out how to stay in business in the event of disaster. Typical incidents include local events like building fires, regional incidents like earthquakes or floods, or national incidents like pandemic illnesses. However, it is not limited to just that. Any event that could cause the potential for loss of business should be considered, including any event that the business is dependent on, such as loss of source of supply, loss of critical infrastructure (a major piece of machinery or computing/network resource), or the result of theft or vandalism. As such, risk management must be incorporated as part of BCP.
Disaster Recovery Planning:
Disaster Recovery is the process, policies, and procedures related to preparing for recovery or continuation of technology infrastructure critical to an organization after a natural or human-induced disaster. Disaster recovery is a subset of business continuity planning (BCP). While business continuity involves planning for keeping all aspects of a business functioning in the midst of disruptive events, disaster recovery focuses on the IT or technology systems that support business functions.
