IT continuity planning is the process that ensures continuous operations of business applications and supporting IT systems (i.e., desktops, printers, network devices). IT continuity planning is a subset of enterprise business continuity planning. A business continuity plan is an enterprise-wide group of processes and instructions to ensure the continuation of business processes in the event of an interruption.
IT continuity plans are designed to reduce the impact of a major disruption on key business functions and processes. The plans are based on risk understanding of potential business impacts and address requirements for resilience, alternative processing and recovery capability of all critical IT services. They also cover usage guidelines, roles and responsibilities, procedures, communication processes, and the testing approach.
