Abstract

An uninterrupted supply chain, extremely important in day-to-day business operations, becomes even more critical following a disaster. The absence of needed supplies, equipment, and services can delay the restoration of business operations, a resulting loss of revenue, and a possible loss of customers and clients. This workshop covers the currently accepted best practices for developing a comprehensive Business Continuity Program. An assessment will be conducted to help you better understand your organization's current level of disaster preparedness. A step-by-step process for developing a Business Continuity Program will be presented that can be used to initiate a new initiative, evaluate an existing program, or better understand where your business unit fits in the big picture of the organization’s Business Continuity Program.
