Do you really know what you are protecting against with your Business Continuity Program?
Sure you did the Risk Analysis and matched this up with your risk tolerance. You even crossed referenced it to your Business Impact Analysis. But are you protecting against the right things.
In many cases the analysis phase looks at major disaster events, such as fires, floods and environmental events. But what about the small events that could really impact your operation?
What would you do if your Internet connection was lost? How about your incoming telephone lines.
Could you continue to operate without these two pieces of simple often overlooked technology? Do you have plan in place to quickly re-establish these pieces of your infrastructure?
Looking even closer at your operations; what about losing a single application due to a corrupt file or some data loss.
Could you or your staff continue to do business while the application was recovered?
It may not be the major event that puts you out of business, it may be the small event that just happens to hit a critical part of your organization.
There are no upcoming events at this time.
