Business Continuity Planning
Due to the economic crisis we’ve all suddenly been plunged into, many businesses didn’t make it.
For those that did, I have one question; Did you make it through because you had a plan in place, or did you make it through by the skin of your teeth?
Business Continuity Planning is vital to the continuation of your business, and now that you have come through it, make that plan! Create your Continuity plan with what you have learned!
What is Business Continuity?
A business continuity plan is a plan for what you will do if a disaster strikes. It can be as big as COVID-19 or a fire in your office to as small as a server crash.
Why do I need a plan?
The ones that have a plan, know how to respond when a major, business effecting event happens. Those who fail to plan can end up out of business before they even have time to react!
