Business Continuity Plans
With Plan4Continuity, your business continuity plan is no longer a document gathering dust in a drawer but a live system
that contains plans, simulation schedules and audit logs of all activations as well as being a full management system of your
business continuity activities and communications.
The five most important elements of continuity planning are people, assets, services, locations and vendors or suppliers.
They all affect each other and together make up the cornerstone of the business continuity ecosystem.
Plan4Continuity brings these elements together in your business continuity plans.
Business continuity planning by location.
Your business may have different branches, regions, buildings, floors, departments ,even home offices and temporary remote sites. We call these entities “locations”. By dividing one’s business into locations one can manage business continuity more effectively.
People are a business s vital asset
People control and use assets, perform services and deal with vendors. They also make decisions, pay wages and liaise with clients. People, from plan managers to action owners, need to be involved in your continuity planning.
Without services no business can function
Electricity, internet connectivity, IT support , telephony are your services, be they internal or external. Without these nothing would happen in a company. Disruptive event management needs to cater for alternative scenarios when these services are disrupted.
Vendors need to be active participants
Vendors and suppliers of services are critical to the ongoing function of a business. They need to be active participants in your business continuity planning and form a vital link in the supply and disaster recovery chain.
A business needs assets to provide services
Knowing the assets that are critical to business operations is an important part of business continuity. Assets should therefore be included in business continuity plans, which can be simple service schedules or plans for when these assets services become disrupted.
