  2. 2. TN-Summit 2008 Tennessee Board of Regents Tennessee Summit October 13‐14, 2008 Seeing the New Horizon Technical DBA 3.6 Business Continuity: More Than Disaster Recovery Abstract: A high level discussion about how business continuity is more than  disaster recovery. Your IT business continuity plan must involve issues  across a broad range of IT centric topics. This discussion will touch on  the type of topics that should be included in your plan. Some of these  topics can include issues of government regulation, hardware and software contracts, staff roles and responsibilities, and many others.  Your business continuity plan should include how to deal with a  changing environment and how your business will respond.  Do you have a business continuity plan?DBA Collaborative
  3. 3. TN-Summit 2008 Tennessee Board of Regents What is Business Continuity? Business Continuity is the activity performed by an  organization to ensure that critical business  functions will be available to customers, suppliers,  regulators, and other entities that must have access  to those functions. These activities include many  daily chores such as project management, system  backups, change control, and help desk. Business  Continuity is not something implemented at the  time of a disaster; Business Continuity refers to  those activities performed daily to maintain service,  consistency, and recoverability.DBA Collaborative
  4. 4. TN-Summit 2008 Tennessee Board of Regents What is Business Continuity? The foundation of Business Continuity is the  policies, guidelines, standards, and procedures  implemented by an organization. All system design,  implementation, support, and maintenance must be  based on this foundation in order to have any hope  of achieving Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery,  or in some cases, system support. Business  continuity is sometimes confused with disaster  recovery, but they are separate entities. Disaster  recovery is a small subset of business continuity.DBA Collaborative
  5. 5. TN-Summit 2008 Tennessee Board of Regents What is Business Continuity? The term Business Continuity describes a mentality  or methodology of conducting day‐to‐day business,  whereas Business Continuity Planning is an activity  of determining what that methodology should be.  The Business Continuity Plan may be thought of as  the incarnation of a methodology that is followed by  everyone in an organization on a daily basis to  ensure normal operations.DBA Collaborative
