Business Continuity has been defined as “the capability of the organization to continue delivery of products or services at acceptable predefined levels following a disruptive and/or catastrophic incident.” If a disaster strikes at your business, do you have a strategy to keep downtime as minimal as possible? Have you considered all associated costs? Can you meet recovery goals and objectives? These are questions many business owners find themselves asking when it’s too late.
Business Continuity “is about building and improving resilience in your business. It’s about identifying your key products and services and the most urgent activities that underpin them and then, once that ‘analysis’ is complete, it is about devising plans and strategies that will enable you to continue your business operations and enable you to recover quickly and effectively from any type of disruption.
