Even though every company needs a plan to help them get
through the next crisis, they don't always know how. Even companies that
have a plan may need help in taking it to the next level - or a fresh set of
eyes to see where they are vulnerable. The Certified Business Continuity
Professionals (CBCP) can guide your planning process from project initiation
all the way through to testing.
||As your business changes, your business continuity plan
must change with you. This may not apply to you, but I've seen
businesses add new systems, change key personnel, and take on entire new
business lines and not adjust their plans. It simply falls through
the cracks, and as a result, that company is now vulnerable. Tech
Valley Continuity will review your plans to make sure they are current.
||When you lie in bed at night thinking about your
business, what keeps you staring at the ceiling? Hopefully it's
how your are going to spend all of those profits, but you are probably
thinking about what can go wrong. We cannot predict the future,
but by conducting a Risk Analysis, you will know the risk you face with:
- Natural Weather and Environmental Threats
- Human Created Events, both Intentional and Unintentional
- Technologically caused events
||So how bad is it going to hurt? Will your
employees still have a job? Will your children still be able to go
to college? Each negative event has an impact on your operations.
Sometimes you barely notice it. Other times it can make you cry.
Tech Valley Continuity will help you quantify the impact an event can
have on your cash flow, reputation, market share, and operations.
||OK, so you know what can go wrong and how much it will
cost you. What are you going to do about it? Tech Valley
Continuity will work with your technical and management teams to develop
the most cost effective solutions to those threats that will hurt the
most. We will help you prioritize solutions, develop
implementation schedules, and bring your plans to life.
||It can not be stressed enough, "Your Plan is only as
good as your Last Test". You don't know if it's going to work
unless you've tried to make it work. Think about it. When
was the last time you did something for the first time and it worked
perfectly? If you play golf (or any sport for that matter), you
know how many hours of practice it takes before you start feeling
comfortable with your performance. You know that, time and time
again, you're going to screw up. But with practice, you screw up
less and less. You may never turn pro, but at least you can be
comfortable with your performance when you need it. The same is
true with your Business Continuity Plan - you need to practice.
