Business continuity is a company’s ability to recover from worst-case scenarios, resulting in minimal impact on your business. Therefore, a business continuity plan is crucial for every company in case unexpected circumstances beyond your control happen.
There are major aspects that can gauge whether your company is prepared in case any disaster happens, including:
1. Disaster Recovery Plan
It puts into detail any plans in case a disaster strikes, whether nature- or technology-related. Failure to create contingency plans can result to further disaster for the company.
2. Redundancy and Fail Over
Redundancy is having a back-up system in different places in case the main system breaks down or fails. On the other hand, fail over is considered an important practice in the events of internet and server failure or black-outs. Having these two components will put your company at lower risk of business operation interruptions.
3. Risk Assessment
This is also one of the most important processes where the company will audit your internal processes and identify operation risks in case of interruption or failure. Regular risk assessments can help the company operate effectively and efficiently.
Doing regular back-up tests will ensure your back-ups are updated and working.
