The terms Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery have been thrown around for years, but the reality is, without a plan, one that has been developed and tested, things are left in a reactionary mode. Now is the time to become PROACTIVE.

In recent years, there have been major fires, floods, storms, and now, the COVID-19 virus. Does your organization have something in place to ensure your business can continue to operate when the COVID-19 hits your community?

Traditionally, when organizations think of a business disaster, the thoughts are of a cyber breach or some type of malware attack. It is necessary to have a plan in place to address these types of issues, but what about a disaster that directly affects our workforce?

Do you have a Business Continuity Plan for your business?

It is important to define the key roles and responsibilities for your employees in the case of a disaster. Have you taken the time or created the opportunity to consider the following:Red question marks

  • Does our organization believe that a business continuity plan is the same disaster recovery?
  • Do our people know what to do in the case of emergencies?
  • Do we have insurance to cover our losses, and do we have the necessary documentation of the procedures/policies that we may be required to produce?
  • Do we have time to develop our own Business Continuity Plan, and do we know what this should encompass?

What if you were provided with an opportunity to build this type of plan from easy to use templates? Not only create such a plan but to test it in real-time to ensure the right people and resources are in place and also be able to revise policies as your organization needs to make changes.
