One of the crucial aspects to note is that either of physical, human or IT resources cannot be developed without the influence of each other. This is where business continuity or disaster recovery complements each other with security convergence, involving constant communication.
It is the responsibility of business leaders and IT leaders to work in conjunction with each other and identify the critical business systems for the company and determine the business plan accordingly.
While working together, they are responsible to analyse the company systems and decide upon the personnel to look for any critical event and lessen its effects. The business plan should be prepared so that it contains a detailed procedure for identifying and corresponding with employees after any such event takes place. For instance, in a catastrophic event, the business plan should also consider the employees’ personal concerns apart from professional management with the event.
However, the details may differ from one company to another, in terms of the size, scope as well as the nature of business of a company.
