Having a documented plan for worst-case scenarios is a great way to fortify a business and ensure its success. As revealed by the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations that are able to act quickly and decisively in the face of difficulties are the most likely to make it through hard times. A technical writing team can develop Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plans to ensure your business is prepared for disasters, major events, and other disruptions.
What Are Disaster Recovery Plans?
Disaster Recovery Plans are technical documentation outlining how to resume a business or organization after a disruption. For example, if a company’s building burns down, a Disaster Recovery Plan would dictate how the company should move forward and continue their business.
What are Business Continuity Plans?
Business Continuity Plans offer methods of working around smaller-scale disruptions that may not be as problematic as a full disaster. These disruptions could include an employee getting sick or going on vacation, interpersonal dilemmas, or supply-chain mishaps. The goal of Business Continuity Plans is to keep a business operating smoothly when it faces naturally occurring day-to-day problems.
Benefits of Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plans
Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plans make a business more secure and adaptable. Having a plan reduces the need for on-the-spot improvisation, and puts less pressure on employees and individuals to make decisions in the face of adversity. Some further benefits of this documentation are that it…
- Improves confidence in customers, employees, and share-holders
- Ensures compliance with industry standards
- Preserves brand value and reputation
- Helps mitigate financial risk
- Minimizes damage from changes in supply chains
