Recovery and Business Continuity Plans
Recovery and business continuity planning is important for all organizations from small to large. It covers planning and preparation to ensure that an organization can continue to operate in the event of an incident or disaster AND return to an operational state within a reasonably short time. Many organizations go out of business after a disaster when they do not have a plan. So it is very important to think ahead to protect your business, your employees and your clients.
A plan identifies the risks, threats and vulnerabilities within the organization and provides a framework to build resilience, to respond, and continue operations. A business impact analysis with recovery time objectives will identify time-sensitive or critical business functions and processes, and the resources that support them. Manual procedures, back-ups, checklists and contact lists are important elements. A plan does not have to be large, but it has to be practical and easy for all employees to understand and follow. We can help you work through the different areas needed to create a plan for your organization.
