[Beginning of transcript]
Hello! My name is Roger and I’d like to talk to you about what is Business Continuity.
Business Continuity, along with disaster recovery, are looking at critical compartments and functions of the organization and make sure that they will continue to run if there’s an interruption to your business.
So, it counteracts business interruptions to a level where you know that if something is going to happen or something has happened, you will be in a situation where it will be a better problem day forward.
So, with the business continuity plan, you have to have solutions to problems and business continuity does solutions have to have an understanding of how they are going to impact the business of the organizations.
There are two main components of Business Continuity:
Your Recovery Point Objectives –which ones do you want to get up and running again and how fast you need to do that is called a Recovery Time Objective.
And those two components are what you should be looking at in the business to find out what is going to be good for your business and how fast you need things up and running.
But with that Business Continuity, there’s a lot of things. You have to understand that if you have a disaster and you need the business continuity plan or the business continuity has to come in to it, you need to know that you have to spend money to get back to where you were and who has the purse strings and how people access that money is part of business continuity.
Also, you need to have a compliance component. The compliance component make sure that your business is up and running and protecting everything that it needs to protect your tasks.
Thank you very much.
