The definition of BCP and DR have been changing over a period of time.
Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and Disaster Recovery (DR) are often used in a single sentence so often that people often begin to forget that there is a difference between the two.
In the simplest form, BCP refers to plans about how a business should plan for continuing in case of a disaster. DR refers to how the IT (information technology) should recover in the event of a disaster.
If you think practically, a BCP is a plan that allows a business to plan in advance what it needs to do to ensure that its key products and services continue to be delivered in case of a disaster, while a DR allows a business to plan what needs to be done immediately after a disaster to recover from the event. So, a BCP tells your business the steps to be taken to continue its key product and services, while a DR tells your business the steps to be taken to recover post an incident.
