At any time, a crisis or business interruption could occur – and force you and your management team to make major decisions with strategic consequences, under tremendous time pressure. If you don’t have a business continuity plan in place, put that critical task at the top of your to-do list. And make sure it addresses the risks associated with natural crises, leadership crises, technological crises, workplace violence and risks to the entity’s mission, brands performance and reputation, and much more.
The business continuity infographic below, created by German software company, HOB Secure Business Connectivity, does a terrific job of graphically depicting the important and critical steps to creating and improving your business continuity plan. As the graphic mentions, this plan requires the involvement of multiple departments, such as the executive office, security department, corporate risk office and human resources. An establishment of a comprehensive plan ensures that businesses and agencies are able to continue performance of essential functions under a wide range of circumstances.
