The Zika virus and business continuity

Blog posts   •   Feb 01, 2016 10:40 GMT

Although it is not headline news, there have been quite a few news items on the virus, its effect on pregnant women and its rapid spread through South America and the Caribbean. With a major outbreak occurring in Brazil at the moment and the Olympic games taking place in Rio later this year, this is one of the angles the news media are taking on the story.

Most business continuity management lifecycle diagrams include risk assessment somewhere in the process. Risks are identified and rated, based on the likelihood of each risk occurring and the impact if it does. The problem with this approach is that the risks identified are, more often than not, of the low likelihood, high impact variety.

Critical Infrastructures (CIs) ask us to consider a different picture of reality, one of complexity which is hard to handle. A map of interdependencies between CIs shows how the weakness or failure of one might impact on the entire chain.

I think use of the notification systems in ‘peacetime’ has to be limited to ensure people don’t feel they are plagued by messages. However, I do feel that they could be a very powerful tool for raising awareness of business continuity within an organisation and providing helpful information to staff.

For many businesses, right-sizing their business continuity is near impossible to get right. Many organisations diligently allocate budget to BC, but most of the time these resources are under allocated, misunderstood or charged to the wrong person to carry out.

If we predict something out of the ordinary then we are going to look foolish when it doesn’t happen? Yet if we wait until its occurrence is certain have we left it too late to prepare to manage it? This is the quandary of risk assessment and horizon scanning!
