Does your organisation have an effective business continuity plan in place?

  • 80% of organizations with a tried and tested business continuity plan are likely to survive a major business discontinuity; only 20% of those without a business continuity plan are likely to survive.
  • Over 90% of organizations that suffer a significant data loss are not in business two years later.
  • The Business Continuity Institute’s 2005 survey indicates that 30% of businesses still don’t have a business continuity plan.
  • The data indicates that many of the existing plans are not comprehensive and that maintenance (testing and updating) is generally inadequate.
