Seven deadly sins of business continuity plans

Seven deadly sins of business continuity plans

Recently I gave a talk at the beginning of a workshop entitled 'The Seven Deadly Sins of Business Continuity Plans' and I thought I would share the main points with you.

Many business activities and the resources that support them can be disrupted by severe weather. In fact, a survey by the Chartered Management Institute, in association with the BCI, BSI and the Cabinet Office, found that 54% of businesses reported being disrupted by severe weather in 2012, making it the number one cause of business disruption for the fourth year running.

Many larger companies which have Business Continuity Management systems produce or deliver products. Failure to deliver as a result of any interruption will very likely impact upon the business financially and could ultimately put companies out of business. Is there any wonder therefore that the management of such businesses are often quite willing to spend money on protecting their interests.

Counting the cost of ineffective business continuity

The Business Continuity Institute has published a report to highlight the cost of common threats to organizations, threats such as IT and telecommunications outage, data breach, cyber attacks and adverse weather conditions. 'Counting the cost' demonstrates why it is important for organizations to have a business continuity plan that can help prevent a drama from becoming a crisis.

The other day I attended a meeting of a local business continuity forum. It was a very well run, very interesting meeting – the latter despite the fact that one of the topics was business interruption insurance, living proof that any subject can be made interesting by an engaging speaker. There was, however, one small glitch in proceedings that I thought was worthy of note...

I’m relatively new to business continuity management, with only a little over ten years’ experience in this industry that is said to be made up of the 'Men in Grey'. Someone said this to me at last year’s BCI World Conference, I then looked in the mirror and sure enough that was me already. So what incenses me and what gives me hope that as an Institute we are making progress?

Government and regulators meet to combat cyber threats to essential services

“Cyber attacks are a serious and growing threat to British businesses, but it is particularly important that those industries providing essential services such as power, telecommunications and banking are adequately protected to avoid disruption to our everyday lives." These were the words of Vince Cable – the UK Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills.

National Sickie Day

National Sickie Day

News   •   Jan 31, 2014 15:48 GMT

Monday 3rd February is ‘National Sickie Day’ in the UK, the day when historically businesses have suffered the most as a result of employees taking the day off work. The question businesses managers need to ask themselves is “could I cope with a significantly reduced workforce?” and “would my business still be able to function even if I had fewer employees to carry out the work?”

A nice cup of tea

A nice cup of tea

Blog posts   •   Jan 31, 2014 12:20 GMT

A bad cup of tea is, in my view, worse than no cup of tea at all. It might have all the ingredients (not that there are many) but if it’s not done right it can be awful. In a similar(ish) vein, my view is that a bad business continuity plan is as bad as – and possibly worse than – no plan at all.

How MAD are your Top Management?

How MAD are your Top Management?

Blog posts   •   Jan 10, 2014 12:54 GMT

Dare to ask that question of your Top Management? Maybe not, but a Risk Manager would try to understand their attitude to risk and their mythical 'Risk Appetite'. As a Business Continuity Manager, why not explore their 'Maximum Attitude to Disruption' (M.A.D.) a phrase I believe I uniquely use and created hoping it becomes more prevalent in a commercially driven BC world.

Reading the Good Practice Guidelines (GPG) has now become even easier as the Business Continuity Institute has just released its latest publication – GPG Lite. GPG Lite is a high level overview of the full guidelines and helps explain the ‘what’, ‘why’, ‘how’ and ‘when’ of managing a business continuity management programme. And if that is not tempting enough, it is also free.

Business Continuity relationship with other activities

BC shares common goals and objectives with other management activities. When implemented correctly and with maturity, BC can provide significant benefit through the sharing of key information and the prioritisation of activities.

Embedding Business Continuity in the Organisation

Embedding Business Continuity in the Organisation

Blog posts   •   May 17, 2013 08:00 BST

Getting people to think about business continuity and include it in their daily lives is one of the most difficult, underestimated aspects of a BC programme, yet it can make or break the perception of how successful the programme is. It doesn’t matter how good your resilience and continuity are, if people do not know about it, or what to do in a crisis or how to maintain it, then you have failed.

Developing a response for the unexpected

Developing a response for the unexpected

Blog posts   •   May 15, 2013 15:01 BST

“The only thing harder than planning for an incident, is having to explain why you didn't.” Many organisations believe they are different and unlikely to experience or suffer from an incident. More often than not, they are wrong. No organisation wants to be affected by an incident or expects it, but that does not mean that they should not consider and plan a response just in case it does happen.
