One of the top reasons for a business to shut down is due to not developing a Business Continuity Plan for the possibility of experiencing a disruption or disastrous event. In that plan, just one of the steps you need to take is to identify what you would consider to be critical business activities or what job functions are necessary to keep the business going. More importantly, where does your data reside and how will you get to it?
A Business Continuity Plan is one the most important things your business can do to maintain operations during an emergency. Without this plan, your business may be forced to shut down. Will your business survive being shut down for days? How many clients could you potentially lose? Developing a proper Business Continuity Plan requires both time and forethought. In addition, being ready to enforce it is often even harder. Please let us know if we can provide you with any assistance in ensuring that your business is prepared.
