Three reasons why most organisations can’t get business continuity right

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.

CIOs, business continuity managers and IT managers understand the value of forward-thinking business continuity and resiliency solutions. They know that cloud computing can lower recovery point objectives and recovery time objectives, dramatically improving the availability of data and applications at a time when organizations increasingly depend on the availability of their data and applications.

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!

Five ways to proactively plan for an unforeseen disaster

Five ways to proactively plan for an unforeseen disaster

If a major operational disruption was to occur tomorrow, would you be able to respond and recover in a timely and efficient manner? For many organisations, the answer to this question is only brought to light once an incident occurs. A reactive approach to business continuity will inevitably delay your response and recovery phase.

Adaptive capacity and crisis threshold

At the BCI World Conference I will be presenting on the links between an organisation’s ‘crisis threshold’ and its adaptive capacity in responding to the disruptive event. It is from these events that an organisation learns how to manage the turbulence in its environment, so that in the long term it’s resilience to such turbulence / events becomes stronger.

The Business Continuity Institute’s second Emergency Communications Survey with Everbridge seeks to build on this principle and uncover data that helps organizations carry out their duty of care. I highly encourage you to take some time to respond to this survey and help us give valuable insight that might save somebody’s life.

If you are at the BCI World Conference which is being held at the Hilton London Metropole between 10th and 11th November, and have an interest in furthering your education in business continuity, stop by at the Bucks New University stand, have a chat with Angela, Gavin or Phil about the Diploma in Business Continuity Management, like I did two years ago. You will not regret it.

As most people are only too well aware, the way that we find and use information is going through a radical and fundamental change, which is being driven by the internet. What doesn’t seem to have permeated the world of business continuity though, is that this change is revolutionising the Business Continuity Plan.

When I was asked to give up my day job and write a contingency plan for protecting the port from flooding, I was a little taken aback as I've never undertaken such a task in my working career before. True, I'd seen lots of disasters. Some might say I’d maybe even created a few, but I’d never been asked to plan to avoid them.

One photograph taken during an incident can come to define that incident. The picture of Aylan Kurdi lying dead in the surf in Turkey, may come to define the refugee crisis taking place in Europe at present. Listening to some commentary on Radio 4 yesterday, they tried to explain why the picture was so powerful.

As customers, we had to piece that information together by listening in on the conversations of the staff behind the till. Nothing was happening, and the empty room that we entered was now getting quite full as more and more people joined the queue. It wasn’t the lack of movement that seemed to be their main gripe but the lack of information coming from the staff.

It’s not easy and raising overall awareness levels of business continuity can only be achieved by us working together: sharing ideas and sharing experiences for the overall benefit of the business continuity industry. This is why I wholeheartedly support initiatives such as the Milton Keynes Business Resilience Forum (MKBRF).

Being a business continuity professional is indeed quite interesting and adventurous, either if one is an in-house professional or a consultant. As an in-house professional one gets to come across all odds happening in the business and might have sole responsibility for the critical business continuation.
