Business Continuity Planning / Disaster Recover Planning (BCP/DRP)

The goal of disaster recovery is to minimize the effects of a disaster and take the necessary steps to ensure that the resources, personnel, and business processes are able to resume operation in a timely manner. This is different from continuity planning, which provides methods and procedures for dealing with longer-term outages and disasters.

BCP/DRP is often the forgotten aspect to security and business as a whole. It takes some effort to develop, but for organizations, the time spent is worth its weight in gold. Thanks to the explosion of SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) and MSPs (Managed Services Providers), the process of planning and any costs associated can be easy to manage.

If you do not have a BCP/DRP in place, it is not the end of the world and you should not panic, but you should look into developing one.
