Many organisations I talk to fail to adopt appropriate Business Continuity (BC) strategies. They either plan for scenarios that are unlikely, decide on an approach that is unachievable or fail to align BC strategies with other strategic initiatives. Identifying, implementing and maintaining appropriate BC strategies will determine how successful (or not) your organisation is when responding to major or localised incident.
The principle behind identifying the appropriate BC strategies is one of synergy and practicality. BC strategies should be aligned and integrated with other strategies (such as Business, product/service, IT and premises strategies) and be capable of meeting organisation requirements. These requirements were collected in the Business Impact Analysis (BIA) and Continuity Requirements Analysis and (CRA).
