BCP vs DR – what’s the difference?

It appears as if there is an increase in disasters striking companies around the globe. From something as small as a hacker stealing important information, to as large as a disaster that leaves your premises in ruins, disaster can strike at any time. Many companies are starting to develop plans to prepare for any disasters, two of the most common being Disaster Recovery (DR) and a Business Continuity Plan (BCP).
What is a BCP?
BCP entered the mainstream just before the year 2000, with the Y2K scare.
