Business Continuity - It's not just for DR anymore

Business Continuity - It's not just for DR anymore image

Today's successful companies have Business Continuity sewn into the fabric of their entire infrastructure. 

Business Continuity is defined as the capability of the organization to continue delivery of products or services at acceptable predefined levels following a disruptive incident. ( Source: ISO 22301:2012)

Stop and think about all the disruptive incidents that happen every day. In your daily life, it ranges from forgetting your laptop at home, to losing your smart phone, to clicking on a malicious link regarding your “Amazon shipment” that infects your computer with ransomware. Of course, there are always the major incidents like storms, fire, and server failures that need to be addressed with a Business Continuity plan but in addition to the contingency planning perspective, companies that thrive take an enablement perspective. This perspective brings the human element into business continuity, for most companies that’s one of their largest investments. By excluding them from the Business Continuity discussion, they are missing an opportunity to improve profitability, customer service and employee retention. Put Business Continuity into an everyday perspective and see how it can enable your business to thrive.
