Continuity Central: A Business Continuity Checklist

MegaPath has developed a shortlist of common items that those developing their first business continuity plan should consider:

Designate a team: An effective business continuity plan should involve input from management, the chief security officer, the IT department, Web developer and human resources. These key departments have the ability to ensure the company runs smoothly in times of crisis, while taking into account the needs of their employees.

Identify key personnel: Determine which executives and employees are critical to operating the business (and supporting customers) that need to have access to key systems and information at all time. A business continuity plan must ensure these employees receive the highest levels of support, even during the most disruptive events.
