Knowing how to respond and continue seamlessly with “business as usual” activities is critical. While most companies today recognize the importance of having a disaster recovery plan in place to protect their IT systems, this is only one component of a comprehensive business continuity program.
At Navigate, a dependable business continuity program starts with the identification and prioritization of critical business functions (and their related risks) through business impact analysis. The continuity program is then based on your unique requirements and includes detailed processes and downtime work-arounds, as well as an overall crisis management program. Disaster recovery is closely tied to business continuity planning and is developed from the same business priorities, but with the focus on IT applications and systems.
