Most large businesses have a risk management department and they have a binder they purchased discussing business continuity plan preparation in case of disaster. Perhaps they have put together a rather extensive disaster plan and then filed it away just in case, maybe they have even sent copies to all of their business units. Sounds good right? Well, yes and no.
Yes, it is wise to have a disaster business continuity plan, but no, that is not enough. You see, you cannot become complacent or stop planning just because you have a plan in place. Why you ask? Because disaster planning is like any other business planning, as it is a process, not an event or task. You never complete it. It's on-going, under constant revision and ever-lasting consideration.
When we talk with folks about business continuity programs, they generally think about their computer system, back-up power and IT department. Believe me, it is not just about computers. Every business big and small must be concerned with preparing for disasters. If you are in manufacturing, a disruption will cause loss of respect from customers, lost revenue and even market share, which you may not be able to get back. (posted by me at other site)
