What Is a Business Continuity Plan and Why Does Your Small Business Need One?

What Is a Business Continuity Plan and Why Does Your Small Business Need One?

Time management expert Alex Lakein said it best: Planning is bringing the future into the present so you can do something about it now. In few places does this strike closer to home than business continuity planning (BCP).

Business continuity planning gives you the tools to protect your business in the event of an emergency. Yet not every company’s continuity plan is made equal. Many experience confusion over business continuity versus disaster recovery. The questions become, what to include in a BCP, and whether the protocols in place are solid enough to recover from disruptions, when they occur and save your business.

Contrary to popular belief, hackers are not only targeting corporate enterprises. SMBs have actually become an ideal target for hackers as they often do not have proper security measures put in place to recover and save their business. In fact, 40% of businesses never get back up after a disaster, and 7 out of 10 SMBs that experience major data loss go out of business within a year. As a hard working SMB owner these numbers should scare you. You’ve worked way too hard to be a statistic. A solid BCP will prevent you from becoming one.

As a SMB owner we know your time is valuable and that you are pulled in a million different directions. You don’t have time to create automated data backup and recovery systems, create a single cloud-based platform, or create an employee training program for risk spotting. These are just a handful of things required to create a proactive BCP.
