Life cycle for business continuity and security breaches are the same

When a security breach or business interruption occur, the life cycle from the start to the end are the same.  First and foremost you must be prepared and have a plan in place.  Included in that plan is a being  able to know that the event or incident has occurred.  Then react to what has happened and get back to normal operations as quickly as possible.
