Business Continuity is a management process that provides a framework to ensure the resilience of your business to any eventuality, to help ensure continuity of service to your key customers and the protection of your brand and reputation. In defining a SharePoint BCM it provides a basis for planning to ensure your long-term survivability following a disruptive event.
Business Continuity Plans need to be clear, concise and tailored to the needs of the business. Unplanned events can have catastrophic effects and the disruptive incidents can come from accidents, criminal activity or natural disasters. Business Continuity should become part of the way you perform business. It is better to plan for incidents, which may affect your business, rather than having to “catch up” when a problem occurs. SharePoint aids in this process allowing you to ensure standardised plans and effective communication throughout.
