Business Continuity is the planning and preparation of a company to make sure it overcomes serious incidents or disasters and resumes its normal operations within a reasonably short period. This concept includes the following three key elements:
- Resilience: critical business functions and the supporting infrastructure must be designed in such a way that they are, if possible, unaffected by relevant disruptions.
- Recovery: arrangements must be made to recover or restore critical and less critical business functions that fail for some reason.
- Contingency: the organisation establishes a generalised capability and readiness to cope effectively with whatever major incidents and disasters occur, including those that were not, and perhaps could not have been, foreseen. Contingency preparations constitute a last-resort response if resilience and recovery arrangements should prove inadequate in practice.
Typical disasters that business continuity covers natural disasters including fires, floods, accidents caused by key people, server crashes or virus infections, insolvency of key suppliers, negative media campaigns and market upheavals.
45% of small businesses have no or inadequate Business Continuity Plan and 80% of businesses who suffered a major incident ceased trading within 18 months.
