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.
