What is business continuity?
Business continuity management has now become an accepted discipline that ensures organisations, when faced with an unexpected incident or loss of resource, will continue to be able to maintain their critical activities and manage the effective recovery of their business and services, thus ensuring that impacts remain within pre-defined acceptable limits.
Whilst it is important to define a post incident plan of action, the real benefit of undergoing a business continuity process is identifying the actions that need to be taken pre-incident to ensure that an event simply becomes a manageable incident, not a crisis or disaster. An incident management team will be more confident and in control when they know that they have a selection of proven recovery strategies to choose from to help them respond and recover.
A focus upon business continuity will also help identify actions and risk mitigation measures that will boost organisational resilience and help ensure that many disruptions are actually avoided altogether. It is amazing how many single points of failure and key dependencies are not wholly appreciated until an organisation undergoes the risk and impact analysis elements of their business continuity project. It is not unusual to find back up tapes stored in the same room as the main server or a single phone switch supporting an entire organisation. If these were lost in a fire, how would you recover your data and communicate with staff and customers.
Teed works with our clients to ensure that they can take full advantage of this essential business discipline whilst using methods that are simple but effective, identifying recovery strategies that are appropriate but inexpensive and taking full advantage of the lessons learned during projects managed on behalf of numerous similar organisations.
