Business Continuity

CEPAR works with partners across Emory to create a comprehensive, enterprise-wide continuity of operations program that supports the missions of the university and Emory Healthcare.

This holistic approach allows Emory to sustain critical operations throughout a disruptive incident and to facilitate a more expedited and complete recovery with limited negative impact on our people, processes, and technology infrastructure.

Business Continuity Responsibilities

  • Evaluate operational risks
  • Mitigate impact of potential incidents
  • Ensure operational continuation throughout the incident
  • Guide business to return-to-normal once incident closed

Guides for Our Work

Documented procedures that guide organizations to respond, recover, resume, and restore to a predefined level of operation following disruption.

Business Continuity Institute (BCI)

The capability of an organization to continue delivery of products or services at acceptable predefined levels following a disruptive incident.

Disaster Recovery Institute (DRI) International
