Justice Floral Distribution has successfully been in business for 2 years now. To insure that the company remains successful we need to create a disaster plan. It has recently come to my attention that we do not have one and it is crucial that we create one as soon as possible. In case of an unforeseen event, which can bring our production to a halt our company needs to recover as rapidly as possible to continue its services to its clients. Not having a disaster recovery plan in place can put the company at risk of high financial costs, reputation loss and even greater risks to our employees.
We need to be prepared in case of an emergency, whether it is a natural disaster, network outages, active shooter events, data breaches and more. While doing research, I came upon two other types of plans that are also essential. They are a business continuity plan and a disaster recovery plan.
According to Business Continuity Institute, Business Continuity is: “The strategic and tactical capability of the organization to plan for and respond to incidents and business disruptions in order to continue business operations at an acceptable predefined level.”
In other words, having a Business Continuity Plan ensures that the company is prepared to continue business procedures after an unforeseen event. This would mean that our employees, building, contracts, and infrastructure would be able to continue to operate in the event of any type of disruption.
