DCP - Disaster Control Plan
To provide a both a structured and centralised plan for senior management; to enable them to ensure as far as possible the seamless continuation of trading by your company, in the events of minor to catastrophic disasters.
The initial Disaster Control Plan will be created to assist in dealing with the above requirements; and then will evolve into a Recovery Plan; and subsequently form the basis for a more comprehensive Business Continuity Plan.
Everything looks fine, so what can possibly go wrong ?
External types of disaster:
Major supplier has fire at factory/warehouse (minor, medium, major)
Withdrawal of labour (strikes, etc.)
Severe/adverse weather conditions
Technological types of disaster:
Computer network goes down
E-mails can neither be received nor sent
Telephony system failure
Accommodation types of disaster:
Office area(s) becomes unworkable
Office furniture is damaged
Utilities are unusable
You service and insure your car, you maintain and insure your home, you protect andinsure your health/life - so what do you do about your business and livelihood ???
Many companies have business interruption insurance cover - but how do you best protect the ability to be up and running ASAP - and with the absolute minimum loss of trading ???
If you can not serve your customers very soon, there may well be many others that will be only too glad to fill the void left by your inability to trade. You may well claim back an insured percentage of your losses, but how will you - if ever - get back all the loss of business ???
The Solution: Your company needs a clear path of engagement, that is designed to create a structured plan of action for its' protection -
A Disaster Control Plan »
= it allows you to take control of the situation; not being overtaken by events
A Disaster Recovery Plan »
= it means recovering in as little down time as possible; no damaging delays
A Business Continuity Plan »
= it shows continuity to both staff and customers; maintain profits & liquidity
With your foresight and planning = it can be business as usual !
React = Read + Evaluate + Action
Read the manual - evaluate the situation - action the plan !
