business continuity

Gen Mgt
the uninterrupted maintenance of business activities. Ensuring business continuity requires a proactive process of identifying essential business functions within an organization and threats to those functions. Plans and procedures may then be put in place to ensure that key functions can continue whatever the circumstances. Plans may be drawn up, for example, for contingency, disaster, and risk management, or for total loss control.
