Is your Business Ready For A Disaster?
When we think of disasters the first thing that comes to mind is earth quakes, storms, fire, floods or a Polar Vortex but if you are a business owner you should know that there is also a new age of disaster such as computer have terms like hacks, computer viruses, or false posts on social media. This is why it is very important to have a Business Continuity Plan.
Businesses large or small and Government agencies are under a constant threat that something could happen on any given day that could affect them financially or shut them down permanently.
As a business owner or facility manager you should be asking yourself am I prepared to stay in business and how quick can I open my facility after a disaster hits? According to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 40% of businesses that face a major catastrophic event will not recover will that be your business? A business continuity plan could be your answer.
A business continuity plan is different than a disaster plan in such that a disaster plan is how to survive at that moment and the safety of your employees. The continuity plan is how will the business or facility resume operations, service customers, fulfill contracts and stay in business after the disaster.
To develop a business continuity plan it takes leadership and a team of professionals. The game of what ifs has to be played with your team so that your plan will have maximum effectiveness.
