What is a Business Continuity Plan?

Business continuity planning goes hand in hand with your security strategy.

A business continuity plan (or business contingency plan / business continuity strategy) describes the measures put in place to prevent business critical functions being impacted by threats such as loss of infrastructure, information, utilities, theft, fire or flood.

It also addresses how such threats may be dealt with, should the worst happen.

Protection & compliance to ensure continuity 

Creating business continuity plans

Planning for disaster recovery and business continuity requires careful thought. It includes thorough analysis of the potential risks that could significantly impact your business critical functions and operation.

There are many questions that need to be considered. What measures should be put in place to aid prevention? How quickly will you find out about a threat? How can losses be reduced?

For example, if a fire were to break out in your premises, a fire alarm can provide early detection. Ensure it’s monitored, and you’ll be notified within seconds of the alarm triggering. This means action can be taken quickly to call the emergency services and tackle the blaze, in turn minimising damage and potential losses.
