I’m borrowing this from then “Raj Palat” library of clever anecdotes. You have a 10am meeting. You go to jump in the car when you notice you have a flat tire. Your spare tire is your backup, but it’s going to take a bit of work to get you back on the road. Your DR plan is Uber, but that might be a few minutes late. Business Continuity is the extra car you have at the office because that allows you “continue on with your business” and deal with the flat tire later on.
