WHEN YOUR BOARD MEMBERS AND STAKEHOLDERS ASK, "WHAT HAPPENED?"
HOW WILL YOU ANSWER IF YOU DIDN'T HAVE A PLAN?

"Of all businesses that close down following a disaster, more than 43% never reopen....an additional 29% close for good within two years...(because they
did not have a business continuity / disaster recovery plan)."

Institute for Business & Home Safety

 

EIGHT QUESTIONS:

1. How immune is our homeland, your business, your community, and our economy against future hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, a pandemic event or a terrorist attack?

2. How prepared is your business to reopen within 24 to 48 hours following a natural or man-made disaster or epidemic?

3. What is your disaster Recovery-Time Objective (RTO: your targeted time-limit to get critical operations/systems back up and running) following a local disaster?

4. Have you formulated a plan and strategies to limit the impact of risks to your business?

5. How quickly can you return from incremental business resumption to normal business operations after a minor disaster? After a major disaster?

6. Do you believe, as many business owners/managers do, that insurance will take care of the losses?

7. Where will your customers/clients, vendors/suppliers go, during downtime, when your building is destroyed or employees are quarantined and your business is knocked to its knees?

8. Will your owners, board members/stakeholders be well informed about impact, on the bottom line, if there is no Business Continuity Plan?

Regardless of all your good efforts--without advance Business Continuity Planning (BCP)--your business may be closed due to an overt or covert terrorist attack, a cyber attack, severe electrical storm, hurricane, earthquake, wildfire, flood, epidemic or other cause.

THREE OBJECTIVES:

1. Protect your business and community's human and physical infrastructure.

2. Stay in business...no matter what happens.

3. Protect the economy of your community.

BUSINESS CONTINUITY / DISASTER RECOVERY PLANNING OUTLINE

The Institute for Business and Home Safety has established that 43% of all businesses involved in local disasters never reopen. Of those who reopen, an additional 29% are gone within two years...because they did not establish a business continuity and disaster recovery plan. (Source: IBHS)
