I AM HERE BECAUSE . . .

We’re planning our business continuity

A robust business continuity plan keeps your business afloat even in rough waters. At Immervox we know the importance of a strong business continuity plan. That’s why our team of dedicated experts have helped our customers create their own for nearly 30 years.

Why you need business continuity planning.

Why you need a stable internet connection

Your business continuity plan will identify business functions that are critical to BAU operations. It will also detail how to restore these business-critical functions should a disaster occur. BCP allows your business to get back up and running with minimal downtime or disruption should the worst occur. 

  • Organisation-wide disaster recovery.
    Where DR plans tend to centre around IT infrastructure, your business continuity plan will be a business-wide appraisal of your organisation. All areas and functions, technical or otherwise, will be accounted for. A thorough continuity plan will have contingency and restoration plans to get every department and service in your business back to regular operation as soon as possible.
  • Reduce the cost of disruption and financial exposure.
    When the worst occurs it is felt the hardest financially. There will be times when unanticipated circumstances leave your business financially exposed. Your business continuity plans protect your assets and interests when this happens.
  • Safeguard reputation and build customer trust.
    How a business responds to major or disruptive events can make or break its reputation, both with its customers and within the market. The knowledge that you’ve invested time and finance into a robust business continuity plan cements your business as a trusted name in the minds of your customers and partners. 

 

Why your business continuity plan isn’t strong enough.

A weak business continuity plan won’t safeguard your business against disaster. There are many common pitfalls and mistakes that can be made if careful consideration isn’t applied when managing your business continuity. 

  • It’s not regularly updated (or updated at all).
    Your business, and the world it operates in, will change over time. For your business continuity plans to be effective, they must reflect your business as it is in the present. Recovery plans for your business 12 months ago don’t offer much protection today. 
  • Untested continuity management plans and untrained teams.
    Good business continuity plans are regularly tested to make sure they’re still fit for purpose. An untested BCP could mean certain risks are much greater than initially thought. Staff responsible for recovery procedures must also have regular training. If they’ve not rehearsed what to do during a disaster scenario they’ll be unprepared when it finally happens. 
  • Unconsidered 3rd parties.
    Many of the customers we assist with new business continuity plans overlook the importance of 3rd party vendors, suppliers, and partners. When drawing up any business continuity plan it’s essential to factor in the 3rd parties your business relies on. A 3rd party outage could be catastrophically disruptive. Your business continuity plans must account for this scenario.
