Business continuity planning

Can you afford to lose your business overnight?

Very few people could, yet so many of us leave the future of our income to chance.

Don't risk your livelihood disappearing in a flash.

Business continuity planning is one of those things that most business owners overlook for many reasons.

If you're new to this business game this could be the first time you've heard of it, or it could be something that you think only belongs in the domain of "big business".

The thing is though, business continuity planning is something that should be done by every organisation: from small, sole operators, to international corporations, and even your local community group.

If you have insurance for your personal belongings, then you know that risk management is important.  The same concept applies to your business activities.

Taking the time to identify the things that could impact your ability to operate your business and earn an income is a priceless activity.  

Manage risks to your business by planning for continuity

Business continuity planning doesn't just belong in the world of big corporates.

Why business continuity planning?

I've worked with all kinds of organisations over the last two decades, and the majority of them don't have enough emphasis on securing their ability to recover from the unforeseen.

Natural disasters can strike anytime with severe consequences, but so can computer viruses or electrical fires.

The point is that you never know what is in store for you, but you can determine where the weakest points of your business are and take steps to protect those to the best of your ability.

If you or other people rely on your business to survive, then why wouldn't you protect that?
