Business Continuity

What is Continuity?

Continuity is the ability of an organization to continue operations and services in the face of a disruptive event. It's about understanding, anticipating, and planning for events that threaten our mission so that Cal State Monterey Bay remains viable. Continuity is more than just the ability to recover from a disaster; it's the ability to continue operating before, during, and after an incident.
