The concept of business continuity is based on the identification of all business functions within an organization, and the assignment of a level of importance to each business function. Business continuity planning ensures that all personnel in an organization understand which business functions are the most important to the business. These activities may include many daily chores such as project management, system backups, change control, and help desk. However, business continuity is not something implemented at the time of a disaster; business continuity requires planning and should include all activities that need to be performed daily to maintain service, consistency, and recoverability.
