How to Prepare a Simple Small Business Continuity Plan – May 18

Business Continuity Awareness Week is an annual event that highlights the importance of planning to make organizations resilient and recoverable in the face of disruptive events.  Business Continuity centres on preserving organizations of all sizes and purposes in the face of disruption and disaster. 

This Webinar will discuss simple ways for small to medium sized organizations prepare for outages and disruptions.  Planning is about more than the actions to be taken when things go wrong.  Business Continuity Planning outlines the organization itself as the object of the planning, not the disruption itself. 


Participants will understand how to prepare their organizations to overcome disruptive events. 

Who Should Attend 

Small & medium sized businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and entrepreneurs that want to learn business continuity methodology to help prepare for and manage disruptive events.  Anyone interested in Business Continuity 

During this webinar, you will 

  • Learn the steps to collect and analyze the information you need to prepare for your plan. It begins with a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) to get to know your organization. 
  • Discover recovery strategies, which begins with reviewing the types of decisions you will need to make if a disruptive event occurs. Will you work from home? Is there an alternative work site? Who needs to be contacted? And more. 
  • Learn how to create a simple Business Continuity Plan to help manage and recover from disruptive events, including key action items and contacts.
  • Participate in an engaging exercise. Attendees will be able to practice a business continuity plan based on a disaster scenario.
