How important is staying in business to you?
What is Business Continuity?
Business continuity is the ability of an organization to maintain essential functions during, as well as after, a disaster has occurred.
Business continuity planning establishes risk management processes and procedures that aim to prevent interruptions to mission-critical services,
and re-establish full function to the organization as quickly and smoothly as possible.(Margaret Rouse, TechTarget,
Why should I make a Plan?
Business disasters come in all shapes and sizes. Business owners should take steps now to give themselves a better chance to reopen quickly.
Without a business continuity plan, one in four businesses forced to shut down because of a disaster never reopens.

How do I start?
- Conduct a business impact analysis to identify time-sensitive or critical business functions and processes and the resources that support them.
- Identify, document, and implement to recover critical business functions and processes.
- Organize a business continuity team and compile a business continuity plan to manage a business disruption.
- Conduct training for the business continuity team and testing and exercises to evaluate recovery strategies and the plan.
