Streamed live on 19th Mar 2014 – Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning –https://www.businessconnectionslive.com/ – Business Connections Live Programme 27. Broadcast 19th March 2014
Its important that all business have an effective and structured Business Continuity plan.
We talk to Mike Osborne – Managing Director of the Business Continuity Division of Phoenix IT Group http://www.phoenix.co.uk/about/ about Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning
We discuss why firms need Business Continuity and how they can go about informing themselves and implementing a basic continuity plan
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning
Key issues examined on this edition of Business Connections Live
- The risks firms need to consider
- The increasing expectation of business customers and consumers for 24/7 service
- Things to consider for IT Recovery & Continuity
- Things to consider for overall business continuity
- The importance of Communicating during a disaster
- It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive
If firms/people are prepared they will suffer less impact as a result
Those firms that suffer a disaster and recover badly (if at all) often fail or don’t get back to the levels of business they were previously at
Customers and/or investors are increasingly demanding BC Plans so be prepared
Business Continuity is a business advantage and should not be seen as another overhead
There are some excellent resources for business on http://www.thebci.org
This is such an important subject that this week is International Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW). The week is about promoting awareness and solutions for all parts of industry, commerce and communities around the need for and benefits of business continuity.
Whilst the event is an annual event, it is perhaps more relevant this year as a result of the extreme flooding that has been so widely publicised
