What is business continuity and why is it important?
Business continuity ensures that the business functions, materials and data that are critical to the continuation of the business is available to its customers, employees, suppliers and others that need access. This is important, because your business, its employees and data, need to be able to continue working before, during and after the disaster.
Your business’ ability to communicate is vitally important. Regardless of the type of disaster, there is something as a business owner or manager that you can do to increase survival, minimize damage and keep your business safe. It’s called a Business Disaster Recovery Plan.
This is a plan that is done in advance, practiced, updated and restocked.
It’s not a “do it and forget about it” kind of plan.
