Bounce Right Back with Vitabyte's Contigency Plans
The move to business technology makes business service availability more critical than ever. You cannot afford the impact that site outages, disasters, or even operational disruption might have. Your BC&A strategy must address your business and operational risks. This is done through an integrated approach to business continuity, IT contingency planning, operational availability, disaster tolerance & recovery, and data protection.
Our solution target:
What is going to happen?
What are we going to do about it?
What can we do ahead of time to get prepared?
This guide helps planners think through these questions in a systematic way. Contingency planning is most often undertaken when there is a specific threat or hazard; exactly how that threat will actually impact is unknown. Developing scenarios is a good way of thinking through the possible impacts. On the basis of sensible scenarios it is possible to develop a plan that sets out the scale of the response and the resources needed.
Our Contingency planning methods breaks contingency planning down into five main steps, shown in the diagram below. Each step is covered by a separate chapter in the guide.
In order to be relevant and useful, contingency plans must be a collaborative effort. They must also be linked to the plans, systems or processes of other government, partner or Movement bodies at all levels – national, regional and global.
