Can you afford BCP? Or can you afford NOT to BCP?? In a word: Yes. Really, you don’t have a choice but to afford Business Continuity Planning. This is especially true in this uncertain era. While plans aren't free, the costs to your business will be much lower than if you have to clean up after a disaster when you don't have a plan. Why You Need a Plan 93% of companies that experience a disaster without a recovery plan close within 5 years. Why? Cash flow. Your insurance will keep you running through your business day, but once the money runs out you better know who your customers are going to ..read more

When disaster strikes… take advantage!

There are so many examples of new coverage that could’ve gone better. When we do Business Continuity planning with our clients, we underline the importance of getting the right message out to their customers as soon as possible. If you let the media portray the emergency, they will make it seem much worse than it really is, as they have to fill time on their programming and let’s face it, sensational news sells! For example: One Sunday, a passenger train was returning to Ottawa and had a mechanical fire about 40 minutes south of the city. The article was filed by a reporter that happened to be ..read more

(Un)Realistic Expectations
KingsBridge | Business Continuity
by Roswitha Firth
11M ago
Everyone’s expectations of systems and services continue to rise. Even after a pandemic, endless weather incidents, outages and more, your customers and employees generally will have an “I need it, and I need it NOW” mindset. Whether those expectations are realistic or not might not even matter (particularly when it comes to your customers since many believe the customer is always right). But employees without email? Now *that’s* a crisis. From the dozens of tickets opened for Help Desk assistance to missed calls because staff don’t have access to their calendars, and you’ve got a lot of ..read more

BCP consultants vs BCP software: Is the field changing?
KingsBridge | Business Continuity
by KingsBridge BCP
1y ago
Change is the only constant. We always find it interesting to see how the field of Business Continuity (BCP), Disaster Recovery (DRP) and Continuity of Operations (COOP) continues to evolve. Is there a “need” for BCP consultants when a client already has BCP software? What are we seeing when it comes to having a consultant in to complete your planning? BCP Software or BCP Consultants? In the old days, consultants were the only solution because software vendors (us included) hadn’t built tools that were simple enough to use. You really needed a Business Continuity consultant to get the BCP, DRP ..read more

People are constantly cataloguing what is happening in their lives on social media with photos, news articles and trendy hashtags. And this is especially true when emergencies arise. Loved ones reach out, asking if they are ok. Photos still get taken, and sometimes the event is live-streamed as it occurs. With 2.9 billion Facebook users and 436 million Twitter users worldwide,* that’s a LOT of news going out! So what is the place of social media from a Business Co ..read more
