There are a variety of emergencies or disruptions – natural disasters, power or equipment failure, staff departure – that could impact your day-to-day operations. Insurance is great but the benefits may come too late to save your business. It’s important to consider how your business would recover before these events occur. By considering potential risks and their impact and having a documented plan in place to prevent disruption and recover from it, you can design your processes and systems in a way that will enable operations to continue during disaster recovery. Once defined, recovery strategies, roles and responsibilities and communication plans must be trained and tested. Reviewing, testing, and updating the plan at least once a year (or more depending on your needs) is key.
