Business Continuity

Reference – the methodology in the Business Continuity Apps is outlined in the pdf download below.

How the app works – described in three steps

1. Map your context

Identify products / services relevant to your context.

Score their significance.

Examples used below – and provided in the app – are from the internationally respected “Standard on Continuity, Emergency, and Crisis Management”, NFPA 1600 (2019).

Identify, and describe, the things you rely on in your context

Resources – as listed in NFPA 1600 (essentially, the things you must have / rely on)

For each of the identified processes or prioritized activities required for you to achieve your objectives, identify the things you “care about” that support the processes or critical activities by focusing on the following:

(1) Personnel

(2) Equipment

(3) Infrastructure (including premises)

(4) Technology (including plant and equipment)

(5) Information (digital and analog)

(6) Supply chain (supplies and suppliers)


2. Assess your risks – toggle between vulnerability before an extreme event and impact during and after an extreme event.

How vulnerable is this resource in the current circumstances?

Describe the things you care about – things you “must have”, and score their vulnerability before a disaster.

How impacted is this resource

in extreme events/circumstances?

(The toggle and impact slider are used in the event of a disaster)


3. Implement your plans.

Communication and collaboration are fundamental to successful management. Especially the management of risk. Reports are generated based on being able to select from combinations of any – or all – of the data fields as outlined in the Menu below. These can be generated as PDF documents – to be shared and communicated as required. It is interesting to note that during the planning process – both before and during a disaster – users will frequently send screenshots to others using to arrow icon displayed at the bottom right of many screens.
