Can A Business Continuity Plan Save Your Business?

Think about it!

When you start a business you create a business plan. When you want to bring a product to market, you create a marketing plan.

Doesn’t it make sense to create a Business Continuity Plan to save your business? Of course it does!

Not every business disruption is caused by a major disaster. In fact, most are caused by everyday problems.

The night maintenance crew accidentally unplugged the server. An employee attempted to access a database that was being upgraded and corrupted the information it contained. Or the transformer down the street blew up during a sudden thunder storm.

In each case, your company could have been negatively impacted!

A solid business resumption plan would have predefined your responses to any of these situations. In fact, it would have helped you avoid the first two and greatly reduced the impact of the last.

Consider these statistics:

  • 52% of American companies have had operations seriously interrupted because of computer hardware problems…

  • 43% American companies have had operations negatively impacted because of problems with their software…

  • 34% have had business operations seriously interrupted because of human error…

  • 75% of companies impacted by a serious catastrophic event fail within two to five years…

    Yes, a good business resumption plan is a time consuming project. Yes, you do not have enough time for the projects you already have. Much less the time to take on something new!

    Ask yourself these simple questions.

    1. What would happen to my business if all of my customer data were destroyed?

    2. What would happen to my business if my building was flooded or destroyed?

    If the answers to questions like these have only negative outcomes, then you need the services of a professional Business Continuity Planner.
