How often have you worked on a written assignment only to have an unexpected computer failure, and you lose all your information because it did not save? Once this happens, you either look for other ways to recover your work or get stuck starting from the beginning.
When the unexpected happens, you want to pick up where you left off, especially when it comes to business operations. For this reason, it is essential to implement a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and have the appropriate technology to support services in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
What is a Business Continuity Plan?
Business continuity is the prior planning and preparation undertaken to ensure that an organization can perform its essential operational functions in an emergency. Each industry has its problems and challenges and requires a detailed Business Continuity Plan (BCP) tailored to its own needs.
Oil and gas companies face many operational risks and threats; a critical first step in developing a business continuity plan is to create an appropriate risk assessment. Other stages involve a technological, economic, and political analysis that must also be integrated into the plan. Once the plan has been constructed, it should be subjected to on-going review and testing.
