The 7 R’s of Business Continuity and Disaster Planning

Quite often when Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery practitioners try to convey the various aspects of a Business Continuity Management (BCM) or Disaster Recovery (DR) program, we miss the mark. We use our own language to convey messages and processes that aren’t in others’ diction. This episode will describe 7 terms that start with “R” that a practitioner can use to help describe to executives or non-BCM/DR practitioners what a BCM/DR program is all about and what each phase of the program contains. The 7 R’s will help anyone understand what a BCM/DR program is all about. We’ll even touch on a bonus 8th R – something everyone would be sure to enjoy.
