There's a common notion, a common perception, that disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) is only for large businesses that perhaps rely on transaction processing, financial, high profile-applications, etc. The reality is that any business -- from a SOHO (small office, home office) to an SMB (small to medium-sized business) to a ROBO (remote office, branch office) of a larger or medium enterprise -- needs to look at and consider issues with DR/BC. It comes down to a business impact and risk exposure. So, DR/BC is not exclusive to the rich and famous large organization. It has applicability to businesses of all size. What's going to change... what's going to vary will be the business impact, the size of the business as well as what the applicable threat risks and threat vectors are.
