Dengan Nama Allah yang Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Pengasihani

Business Continuity defines as a comprehensive managed effort to prioritize key business process, identify significant threat to normal operation and plan mitigation (improvement) strategies to ensure effective and efficient organizational response to the challenges that surface during and after a crisis. Therefore, business continuity plan will ensure that all the business records are protected from any contingency of being damages by unexpected events. This is very important due to the status of records as evidence and essential for the continuance of business operation as a whole

To prevent a disaster from damaging the business records, organizations must first recognize the potential disasters. The most common threats to record include damaged cause by fire, water, theft, system failures, computer viruses, vandalism, and sabotage. Other potential disaster also can come from adverse environmental condition.

Most modern paper stock is undergoing a continual process of deterioration caused by the high level of paper and acidity, and the problem is intensified by atmospheric pollution. Records maintained on microform or magnetic media are also highly susceptible to deterioration if appropriate are not taken to regulate temperature, humidity, population and lighting. Therefore, organization needs to prepare a disaster planning or contingency plan for coping with any disaster.
