Do you have a way to get HR, manufacturing, and sales and support functionally up and running so the company can continue to make money right after a disaster?

For example, if the building that houses your customer service representatives is flattened by a tornado, do you know how those reps can handle customer calls? Will they work from home temporarily, or from an alternate location? Companies sell access to cubicles that include a desk, phone and computer in their recovery centers, along with server- and device-based DR services.

Many people think a disaster recovery plan is the same as a business continuity plan, but a DR plan focuses mainly on restoring IT infrastructure and operations after a crisis. It's actually just one part of a complete business continuity plan, as a BC plan looks at the continuity of the entire organization.

Business continuity encompasses defined planning, preparatory and related activities which are intended to ensure that an organization's critical business functions will either continue to operate despite serious incidents or disasters that might otherwise have interrupted them, or will interrupt them, or will be recovered to an operational state within a reasonably short period.

 

There are six general steps involved in creating a business continuity plan:
1.    Identify the scope of the plan.
2.    Identify key business areas.
3.    Identify critical functions.
4.    Identify dependencies between various business areas and functions.
5.    Determine acceptable downtime for each critical function.
6.    Create a plan to maintain operations.

One common business continuity planning tool is a checklist that includes supplies and equipment, the location of data backups and backup sites, where the plan is available and who should have it, and contact information for emergency responders, key personnel and backup site providers.
