Misconception About Business Continuity Management

"Our people will know what to do in an emergency."

Even the best employees cannot be expected to know what to do when disaster strikes. Leaving each to respond in his or her own way only adds to the confusion of an event.

"We have insurance to cover our losses."

Proper insurance coverage is important, however it may not fully cover some of the peripheral damages from an event, like loss of customers, loss of market share, or setbacks in development or release of a new product.

"We do not have the time to develop a business continuity plan."

Your fixed cost will continue after an even happen, whether or not you are open. Therefore, the time spend on developing and maintaining BCM plan will help you to return your operation to normal.

"Business continuity and disaster recovery planning are the same."

Business continuity is a proactive plan to avoid and mitigate risks associated with a disruption of operations. Disaster recovery on the other hand is a reactive plan for responding after an event.
