Business continuity planning usually conjures up thoughts of natural disasters, explosions, fire, and other incidents that cause physical damage to your business. All are good reasons to make a contingency plan.
But there are even more reasons for business continuity planning. Suppose your key employee has taken ill or passes away. You’ve suddenly lost access to that person’s knowledge. What do you do? With a contingency plan in place, you’d know exactly your next steps.
Or think of today’s trend of telecommuting. That is a good way to make employees happy and reduce office lease costs. But how do you control all the data and communications produced from home? Do all employees have the resources they need? What happens if someone working from home goes rogue or doesn’t “show up”?
In addition, there are many scenarios in which your business STOPS operating even for a few hours.
