What is Business Continuity [BC] and Disaster Recovery [DR]?

Many factors and events can have a negative impact your business – some very obvious and some not so. What is clear though is that data is critical to running your business effectively on a daily basis and must be included in any strategy to protect continuous business operations as well as minimize the impact of a disaster.

One of the classic examples of this was the trading firm Cantor Fitzgerald who lost two-thirds of their workforce in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre on 11th September 2001. Within seconds of the first plane strike, customers were alerted their servers were offline yet the company was able to bring its trading back online within a week.
