The best plan to avoid this it to develop your business continuity plan. This is a plan which identifies all of your critical business functions and resources, with plans to recover or replace those functions or resources, within agreed timeframes. The plan means that when the interruption event occurs, you know what you need to do in a sequential manner to get your business up and running again.
Developing a business continuity plan can present a challenge to a business, as it requires specialist skills that may not be present or needed in the business on a day to day basis. At Riskcom, we have extensive experience in partnering with you to develop cost effective business continuity plans that allow you to respond quickly, no matter what the cause of the business interruption is.
