What Is A Business Continuity Plan?
If the last few years have shown anything, it is the need for companies to be prepared for everything.
Creating a business continuity plan will help you to effectively respond to and overcome a wide range
of business critical threats. It will also provide your organisation with clear guidance and direction.
What is business continuity? Continuity planning is an essential requirement for every business.
Developing a business continuity plan will give your company the best chance at survival
following an unexpected disaster. The plan is required to outline the requirements and procedures
to follow when an incident occurs that threatens a company’s ability to maintain the delivery of
critical services. This includes, business processes, assets to human resources, and data recovery.
What does continuity planning cover? An effective business continuity plan will help to keep your
organisation operational following a disaster. The plan should focus on a wide array of threats
(i.e. cyber attack, flooding, fire, terrorism incident, and disease outbreak, etc.), that could destroy
your premises or target your operational capability to deliver critical services and products.
What are the benefits of continuity planning? Business continuity planning provides a wide array
of benefits for organisations across all industries. The biggest being that it will ensure your
company is able to continue trading following a disaster or incident. A clear business continuity strategy
and plan will not only help to minimise the time disruption your organisation could experience,
it will also aim to ensure that resources and costs relating to the response effort are
effectively managed and minimised.
Having the ability to minimise business interruption also gives your stakeholders, customers and
employees assurance and confidence, whilst also helping to protect your company’s reputation.
This will deliver an added advantage by strengthening your commercial tenders through showcasing your
organisation’s resilience and ability to continue maintaining delivery of all critical services and products.
