Abstract

Every business can experience a serious incident that can prevent it from continuing normal business operations, and this can happen at any time. This can range from a flood or explosion to a serious computer malfunction or information security incident. The management has a responsibility to recover from such incidents in the minimum amount of time possible, but this recovery process requires careful preparation and planning. Companies today do not have a working continuity plan. Companies that do develop a plan, many proceed without sufficient knowledge or input from end users. Because end users are not involved in developing the continuity plan, their manual procedures, physical facilities, hard copy records, and other special needs are often over looked. Thus hardware and applications are being recovered, but not the business processes that use them. For the purpose of business continuity you have to prepare business continuity plans against the unusual disasters that can affect the business processes very badly. So, the choice is yours, either you can act on it and accept the reality of the world or you can ignore it but finally be prepared to become a footnote in history.
