IT disaster recovery and business continuity strategies have generally been fairly segmented from one another in the past. Business continuity plans would often focus on key issues such as employee safety, keeping certain mission-critical systems running regardless of a disaster, and preventing downtimes from having an adverse impact on the organization.
