Any serious incident with the potential to prevent or interfere with normal business operations requires a plan to ensure damage is either prevented entirely – or at least minimized. Business Continuity Planning is a methodology used to define a disaster recovery plan that protects, maintains or restores critical business functions, data and assets during a serious failure, attack or disruption.
In the event of a flood or explosion, serious computer or technology malfunction or information security incident, the directors and management teams are responsible for the organization’s ability to recover in the fastest possible time. Employees, customers, suppliers and your own business operations and its bottom line are at stake. Needless to say, no matter how experienced the team or established the business, this is no time to “wing it”.
During the methodical business continuity planning process, strategies and detailed procedures are developed and put in place, many of which can be drawn or adapted from our extensive experience and templates. Major areas of business continuity plan include:
- BCP planning team
- Prioritize business critical functions
- Plan for maintaining critical business functions
- Identify key customers & suppliers
- Communication plan for customers & suppliers
- Identify essential support providers
- Establish critical questions and checklist
Supra ITS helps customers develop a disaster recovery plan that helps ensure business continuity regardless of how extreme the scenario so you can maintain business operations with confidence.
