For all companies, it should be essential for their day-to-day operation to be able to have detailed planning, which allows them to establish appropriate actions, based on the strategic objectives of the continuity of the operation. Likewise, this planning should contain each of the necessary steps to be carried out, as well as an analysis of the options available.
Continuity of processes
A simple way to carry out such planning is to identify the company’s key work positions and put them within a risk matrix. Considering these positions in an equipped alternate site, where you can move, and have the possibility, in case of any contingency or disaster, to be able to continue working in the basic processes, and of greater criticality, that for the business are indispensable for you not to lose money.
By being able to carry out this planning, the company will be able to know the strategy to be implemented before reaching the expected goal, because, through this, uncertainty is reduced and in some cases, inconveniences that may arise along the way can be prevented, being able to be prepared to face them in advance and mitigating the costs that could be generated by the wrong decision-making.
However, it is not the only good thing that a company can obtain with good planning, because, through it, can be known the performance of our plan: measuring the results obtained in each of the fixed activities, controlling times, efforts and expenses, putting order and implementing effective coordination that benefits each of those involved.
What is a
Taking into account how important the operation and information means for a company. A solution must be efficient and effective when it is needed, so having a BCP (Business Continuity Plan) or a Business Continuity Plan, establishes the necessary planning, so that the company can continue its operation as it normally does, this in case of an inconvenience, attack, or disaster in it.
This plan is based on the correct coordination of the employees or key employees of the company, so that they can follow their functions, activities and daily work in an alternate job location. Which have the necessary conditions to carry it out, since it is the most monetized scenario, in the case of a sinister, compared to any remote scenario, or home office.

Hire a BCP
The reasons are more than obvious, a good strategist in charge of the area of Information Technologies must have as a predominant and under his magnifying glass to have a business continuity plan also known as Business continuity plan in the face of a disaster and then read everything that entails and everything that can be saved with a BCP.
However, this is only the line of action that the company must take to prevent contingencies, so PowerSelf®recommends that, in order to mitigate the greatest amount of risk, we must have more complementary solutions to each other, which support reducing the free risks they leave between them.
Importance of a
Business Continuity Plan
Why or not is a business continuity plan – for a company – important for a company, can only be solved through the following question: How long can the company be without operating its systems and/or facilities?
If the answer was more than a week, then your company doesn’t need a continuity plan. Since, either by the turn of the company or the way in which its operations are located, they do not have essential information or systems and/ or perhaps employees can work anywhere without specific resources.
However, if the opposite is true for your business and in addition to this, you have sensitive data and operations. We have a news for you: your company must have a business continuity plan.
The most important thing for PowerSelf® is to protect your customers’ computer security broadly so that they don’t waste valuable time, customers and assets in the event of a contingency, damage, loss or disaster. The BCP is a very useful tool if it is carried efficiently by the hand of expert and specialized personnel, because as we have noted, the continuity of the company will depend to a large extent, on the effectiveness of the reaction of the same against a contin encea.
