Business Continuity Management
Business continuity management is essential in today's world. According to a 2013 Ernst & Young survey on the global state of information security, business continuity and disaster recovery, these three disciplines have converged, and disruption tolerance time is shrinking from hours to minutes to nanoseconds. The philosophy of the Quality Triad, confirmed that, all parties (customer-employee-shareholders), have high expectations of companies in a crisis situation. Companies must ensure that they remain operational regardless of the conditions in which they must operate.
Nowadays, there are several factors that can jeopardize your operations. In the past, companies focused their recovery efforts mainly based on internal factors. Today’s organizations however face many external factors, very often on a global scale, over which they have little to no control, but where their customers, employees and shareholders have high expectations. External factors such as acts of terrorism, protests, pandemics, fire, transportation issues, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, key man loss, shortage of raw materials, and a myriad of others are all distinct possibilities. Each event comes with its own special set of circumstances and can impact your operations anywhere from minutes to months. Is your business well positioned to meet these types of challenges?
