Business Continuity planning has become an essential part of today’s organization that takes its business and its clients seriously. Disasters can strike any time, it is therefore wise to take actions to prepare for and try to prevent the devastating impact of such catastrophes of any scale.

There is a multiple benefits in planning for Business Continuity for your organization. Not only will it protect your data, hardware, software, etc., but also the people that are a part of your organization, should any disaster strike. In fact, employees will be trained and rehearsed as to what actions to take to immediately activate the recovery process and ensure business continuity if case of any such eventuality.

For small and medium businesses the impact of such catastrophes and even lesser disasters can be more sever. For example, unexpected non-availability of key workers alone could be disastererous, potentially causing as much disruption to business continuity as technological failures, especially if it occurs during the peak season. If only one person is trained to do particular and/or essential tasks, their unexpected absence can severely disrupt operations.
